This Mother’s Day, Shepherd’s Door women and children are celebrating! Michelle Corbin, our Family Life Manager, shares with us some ways that Portland Rescue Mission supports the women to become better mom’s.

  1. Mom’s are reunified with their kids. Every year about 10 families are reunified at Shepherd’s Door.
  2. Mom’s go through a parenting class to break generational patterns and learn new tools to operate in.
  3. Kid’s get to experience healing from a traumatic environment, and learn to have fun!

Our Family Life Center serves up to 25 children whose moms are staying at Shepherd’s Door. Our loving staff engages children in healthy play, active learning, and group activities. Parenting skills are modeled and taught so mothers can become the moms they desire to be. These services are critical in helping families heal and can truly change the trajectory of a child’s life.

As you celebrate Mother’s Day today, we hope you can find joy just as our mom’s here have found joy.  To learn more about our Family Life Center and Shepherd’s Door Program, click here to learn more!

Have a great Mother’s Day!
