New Mercies Ministries

New Mercies Ministries provides an intensive hand up to single women and families in impoverished areas of east Portland and Gresham by providing on-going intensive classes and individual training on site and in homes.

The program includes life skills training in the following areas; parenting, clean and healthy homes, nutrition and cooking, money management, resume building, interviewing skills, dressings for success, healthy relationships/marriage and family.



Move from poverty to healthy living and increasing the accessibility to resources in our community, thereby, increasing wage earning capacity. Better Parenting is also the result, as this program effects the next generation.
