Portland Rescue Mission: Homelessness Hurts

Portland Rescue Mission's Mike Deckon and Andrew Hall joined us to explain how the welcoming family atmosphere of a meal served by people who care is changing the lives of homeless men and women right here in Portland.

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 -- 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.
