Burnside Shelter

Start 2016 off with transformative work at Portland Rescue Mission

It’s been an exciting year at Portland Rescue Mission, and we are in need for more people filled with compassion and excited to come on board and start changing lives forever. If you’ve ever considered a career in a non-profit environment doing life-changing work, now is the perfect time to make the leap. We have positions open at Shepherd’s Door, at the Burnside Shelter working with the women in our Connect program, in Mission Bar-B-Que and at Drive Away Hunger. All positions not only make for fulfilling work, but all are vital to the overall success of the Mission and, more importantly, the long-term success in the lives of the men, women and children we serve daily.

Check out some of our staff’s favorite moments from the last month below, and then scroll down to read the descriptions of what jobs are available right now at the Mission:
