Burnside Shelter

Help transform lives, work at Portland Rescue Mission

At Portland Rescue Mission, we are blessed to give hope and restore life to men, women and children in life crisis. Our New Life Ministries at Shepherd’s Door (women and children) and The Harbor (men) are 12-month programs designed to help people break free from addiction and focus on their recovery process.

Be a part of the dramatic life transformation in the lives of people who come to our Mission looking for help. Check out several open positions at the Mission, many of which involve working directly with residents to help them make significant changes in their life.

We are also hiring a variety of other roles, including a vital position as an Assistant Pit Chef in our newest vocational venture with Mission Bar-B-Que. Read more about that position along with all of our other openings at Drive Away Hunger, our Burnside Shelter and more.

And be sure to check out some of our staff’s favorite moments over the last month.
