PRM is a fantastic organization in every way. Their passion to help the homeless, hurting, and addicted is clearly observed throughout the organization. Not only does PRM treat those they serve well, but they also treat volunteers and employees in an outstanding way. They are continually looking to improve their services, as well as make them more efficient.

We've been donating to Portland Rescue Mission for the last 11 years. This is an amazing ministry. They have helped so many men, women and children. We absolutely love hearing and reading the stories of the lives that have been changed because of what this mission is doing. We have a family member who is looking at being homeless in the next few weeks and Portland Rescue Mission is the number one place that we and many others have recommended. We could not imagine not giving to this organization. Thank You Portland Rescue Mission!

This the best organization I know of! The PRM truly returns to the God given human life "what the locust have eaten". I only pray that I could live closer so I could volunteer. The monies I donate I could not give to better organization. Many, many continued blessings and successes to your organization.

I learned about this organization back in 2000 when we went to an event at the Portland Expo center around Christmas. I loved that they were a Christian Organization and have been making donations every year since. We give as much as we can, when we can. They really help a lot of people out in all aspects of their lives and I pray that they will continue to gain more donations and support so that they can reach out to even more people in need. God bless all who give to The Portland Rescue Mission.
