Review for Portland Rescue Mission Ministries, Inc., Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with Shepherd's Door, the women and children's recovery program at Portland Rescue Mission for many years. Over the years, I have seen many women graduate from the program, which addresses all aspects of recovery - from physical to emotional to spiritual. The program isn't rules based. Instead the staff and volunteers help teach the women and their children, through a grace and love filled approach, how to make the best choices to heal their families and build their futures. This approach seems to make the difference since so many of the women are successful at maintaining their sobriety and using their newfound life and job skills after graduation. It has been a privilege to be a small part of this work.
