There is a jewel buried amongst the businesses and warehouses of SE Portland. Volunteers of America Oregon operates a facility that helps women rise out of addiction into a better life and helps moms improve life for their kids. This is not your parent's VOA. These days, it does a lot more than pick up mattresses and refrigerators. Don Merrill followed the trail of a klatch of women standing in a parking lot to a truly remarkable pair of heroic and life changing programs.
