Burnside Shelter

Support women and children at Shepherd’s Door through advocacy (job openings)

mom-and-child-at-shepherds-doorAt Portland Rescue Mission, one of the greatest joys we get to experience is watching women suffering from homelessness and addiction transform their lives into something new and beautiful at Shepherd’s Door. It’s one of the most exciting and inspiring things that happen at the Mission. And as a staff member at Shepherd’s Door, you too could witness it every single day.

If you want to serve in a very hands-on, active role that gives hope and restores life to the women and children at Shepherd’s Door, consider applying for the role of Women’s Lead Resident Advocate (full-time). In this role, you get to serve as the point person for helping the women at Shepherd’s Door meet an array of very practical needs. Whether that means helping them meet requirements needed by outside agencies like courts, DHS or medical and dental providers, or more personal things like getting finances under control or accomplishing personal goals, our advocates are actively involved with the women and children at Shepherd’s Door. So, if you have a passion for women and children, and your ready to play an integral role in changing someone’s life, we have a place for you.

Other job opportunities currently available at Shepherd’s Door include an On Call Women’s Resident Care Specialist (part-time) and a Family Life Center Assistant (part-time, temporary) for the summer. Outside of Shepherd’s Door, we also have openings at Drive Away Hunger, at the Burnside Shelter and in our administration office. (See all job postings below).
