About Homelessness

Invisible Homeless

Have homeless people become so invisible we wouldn’t notice our own family members living on the street?

In a social experiment done by New York Rescue Mission, several people agreed to pose as homeless men and women sitting on the sidewalk. Then they had their unsuspecting family members walk by them.

Check out the video here to see what happens.

Here at the Mission, we strive to make each person that walks through our doors feel loved and welcome. Your support offers them not just a meal and a bed, but a friendly smile, a listening ear, and the opportunity to get the help they need.

Help Portland’s homeless become visible by joining Portland Rescue Mission today.
