How do people end up homeless?
Few of the people who come to Portland Rescue Mission for help ever expected to end up homeless. Certainly, none of them wanted the fear, hunger, cold, rejection, loneliness and regret they felt.
Sometimes people’s own choices drag them down into homelessness. Some chose drugs and alcohol as an escape from life. They don’t realize the terrible consequences until it’s too late.
For so many, the choice isn’t even theirs.
The stable, happy life they wanted is washed away almost without warning.
But we have good news!
