Burnside Shelter

Meaningful work that you love (job openings at Portland Rescue Mission)

One of our littlest residents writing notes to those in need.

One of our littlest residents writing notes to those in need.

Doing meaningful work is something we all strive for. It’s also the type of work that is a whole lot of fun to do day in and day out—which is exactly what’s available at Portland Rescue Mission. So, join the fun!

Do you have a knack for fixing cars? Is it something you do on the side as a hobby? Turn that into a job at the Mission as a vehicle mechanic at Drive Away Hunger.

Does hanging out with kids light you up? Do you love watching them learn, and teaching them new skills? Consider applying to be our Preschool Coordinator and guiding the lives of the children in our New Life Ministry at Shepherd’s Door.

Or maybe you’re just a huge fan of the Mission, and you want to engage with other champions of what we do by spreading the word about the transformative work being done here. If so, our job opening for a Donor Engagement Officer or Community Engagement Specialist might be the right fit for you.

Whatever the case may be, you can spend your working week at the Mission giving hope and restoring life for the men, women and children suffering from homelessness and addiction that we serve. It’s what we do! And you can be a part of it. (See all of our open jobs below and click on each one to read the description).

Take a glimpse at why our staff loves what they do, and what some of their favorite moments are from the last month:
