With thousands of people homeless in our community, finding a solution can seem overwhelming. But there's a simple way we can help provide shelter 365. Eric Bauer, Executive Director of Portland Rescue Mission, joined us to explain.
KATU is teaming up with the Portland Rescue Mission in our Shelter 365 Telethon to highlight an urgent need here in our community. Hunger and homelessness affect thousands of people in the Portland area and they affect people from all walks of life.
Just $9 a month provides a homeless man or woman with everything he or she needs to gain a foothold in a new life. That includes a hearty meal, a hot shower, a safe night’s rest, clean clothes, access to recovery programs, employment and housing resources and compassionate friendships.
