Rahab's Sisters creates community through radical hospitality with those marginalized by poverty, houselessness, violence and substance use. Our doors are open to individuals of all genders, with a special emphasis on women and gender nonconforming folks.
Bottom Line for Portland
In a time when uncertainty is abundant and job loss and isolation are at their greatest, Rahab’s Sisters has expanded to support a wider community and continued to provide radical hospitality in new ways. Each week, we serve about 400 meals, fill more than 100 hygiene bags, and visit at least 20 camp communities along the 82nd corridor. Our continuing expansion fills gaps to support a wider community and continued to provide radical hospitality in new ways through collaboration with other organization such as JOHS, Street Books, Period, and Portland Street Medicine, helping to extend their reach into the community as they help us to extend ours.
“I truly appreciate that you even think of me. I’ve been feeling like I don’t matter to anyone.” —Rahab’s Sisters guest
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our community is impacted by gender and gender violence. We collectively support and defer to female leadership. We center female and gender-expansive experiences in our community. We are intentional to deconstruct harmful power dynamics as they relate to gender. Our posture, pace, and presence all matter to how we can offer trauma-informed, empowering care.
