About Homelessness

Join our Men’s Night Ministry at the Burnside Shelter

The night hours are some of the hardest for an addict. And at Portland Rescue Mission, our Night Ministry team sees this firsthand. Our Night Ministry staff faithfully intercedes as they provide a safe presence for the men and women in desperate need for shelter and healing.

At both the Burnside Shelter and Shepherd’s Door, Night Ministry embodies both grace and truth as they care for our guests and participants with the strength of Jesus Christ. Keeping watch over the facilities, staff respond to emergencies, secure the buildings, assist in the needs of participants, file documents, record events during the nights. And most importantly, they provide a listening ear to people who need love.

“Just having a nice, kind heart available to them can offer our guests hope,” said a former night staff member. “They can get very discouraged–especially since no one out there wants to look them in the eye. No one wants to be honest and genuine with them about the issues in their life.”

Do you have heart for the hurting? Are you able to look someone in the eye and love them in their brokenness? Are you assertive and able to make decisions quickly? We need you!

We are looking for caring, committed individuals to join our night ministry team. Find out more about this position HERE and apply today or share with someone you know.
