Portland Rescue Mission: Homelessness Can Hit Anyone

Portland Rescue Mission's Mike Deckon joined us – along with Program Graduate Colleen -- to tell us how Portland Rescue Mission saves lives every day.

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. They're men, women and children who are struggling with job loss, rising rent costs, domestic violence, mental illness, trauma and other life hardships.

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.
