Portland Rescue Mission | Portraits of Hope

Despite living in Portland my entire life, and having driven past the Portland Rescue Mission’s Burnside shelter countless times, I had never visited or volunteered for this wonderful organization. When I was first contacted, The Mission was in need of portraits of a few men in at The Harbor, a recovery center, who were transitioning out of homelessness. When I arrived, I was greeted with smiles and enthusiasm. I am used to seeing shy faces through the lens on my camera, but not these men; they were beaming with hope and pride.
