About The Organization
Our mission at Rahab's Sisters is to offer "Radical Hospitality" to vulnerable and exploited women in the Portland Metro area, especially those that have been impacted by the sex industry, domestic violence, poverty, substance abuse, and homelessness.
Our vision is to live in the city of Portland where all women are safe from physical and sexual exploitation.
We gather on Friday nights at Saints Peter and Paul Episcopal Church on Southeast 82nd Avenue (between Ash and Pine), from 7pm - 10pm. We serve all women and offer a warm safe environment with food, hot coffee, conversation, and personal hygiene necessities. Like the original Rahab, we strive to give "friendly welcome" to those who would otherwise be on the streets and in danger.
Our sisters are welcomed without judgement, no strings attached.
How You Can Help
Food: We try to serve a high-protein, hot meal to the women who come to us. You or your organization might like to provide a monthly or quarterly meal, or donate staples such as coffee, tea or sugar.
In-kind donations: We are always in need of laundry soap and toilet tissue as well as personal items such as tampons, toothbrushes, toothpaste, travel size shampoo, travel size conditioner, and new underwear and socks.
Volunteer your Time: There are a variety of volunteer opportunities for women who would like to participate. For more information, please visit our website and contact us or fill out the volunteer application.
