Serve with Shepherd's Door

Shepherd's Door is a faith-based women's recovery home operated by Portland Rescue Mission. In this retreat-like setting, women find a peaceful sanctuary, as well as the security and stability they need to make lasting changes and develop a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their children. Join us in providing spiritual support and encouragement, as well as meeting some practical needs for this special community.

  • Write a letter: Send an encouraging note to an Adult in Custody or thank you to the Department of Corrections Staff.
  • Build a Connect Kit: When a child visits their parent in custody they are unable to bring any items with them. These connect kits help facilitate a good visit between a child and their parent, and make a potentially unsettling experience a more positive one.
  • Build a New Beginning Bag: Help provide some of life's basic necessities to those leaving custody allowing encouragement as they reenter our community.
  • Join a crew! Circle up with like-minded people who are committed to providing wraparound care for those leaving incarceration. Crews will be trained on how to network within existing systems to help individuals find housing, food, clothes, jobs, parenting resources, and healthy communities to thrive in.
