Rahab's Sisters builds community through radical hospitality with women and gender-diverse individuals marginalized by houselessness, poverty, sex work, violence and substance use.
Bottom Line for Portland
When the talk is all about solutions and systems, people often get left behind and forgotten. For over 19 years, Rahab's Sisters has consistently been a community where one's humanity, dignity, and worth are front and center. We support the most marginalized by meeting each person where they are. Whether dining restaurant-style on homemade meals, shopping for clothes and supplies at the weekly boutique, sharing common struggles in support group, connecting with other Guests like old friends, or navigating through community resources - Rahab's Sisters does it with radical hospitality. No strings attached. Our continuing collaboration with organization such as Equi Institute, NAYA, JOHS, Street Books, Period, and Our Streets PDX, help extend our reach and develop deeper ties to the community.
“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 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.
