Burnside Shelter

Help love and support the women in our Connect program (job openings)

PRM-Shepherds-Door-HugIf you have a genuine compassion for people in need and you’re seeking a job you can be passionate about, then you’re the perfect candidate to join the team at Portland Rescue Mission as the Women’s Connect Night Associate!

Connect is our three-month program that’s designed to help both men and women transition quickly from the streets. For women, in particular, the streets can be extremely dangerous. And through our Women’s Connect program, we’re able to house up to 16 women at a time, giving hope and restoring life as they transition into secure permanent housing and employment. As the Women’s Connect Night Associate, one of the prime responsibilities is to simply love and support the women we serve. (Apply for this position online).

There are other job opportunities currently available at the Burnside Shelter as well, such as Evening Ministry Specialist (full-time) and a Men’s Night Ministry team member (part-time). We also have openings at Drive Away Hunger, at Shepherd’s Door and in our administration office. (See all job postings below). (See all job postings below). And then scroll down for some of our staff’s favorite moments over the last month.
