Community Outreach

Community Outreach Winter 2020

Just as Joseph in the old testament was torn from his home and was forced to live in a foreign land and household, so are many children and teens throughout our valley. Through no choice of their own and powerless to change things, teens placed in foster care with no notice must adapt and cope, sometimes without family and in great need of the proper clothing and basic living needs.  Won’t you help us provide for these kids and foster parents and reach EVERY Child this winter!

Our Mission

Every Child mobilizes community to uplift children and families impacted by foster care in Oregon. We do so by working directly with people of peace—those who are part of the faith community in Oregon or committed to the common good. As an organization, we’re committed to a hopeful, collaborative, determined, and generous response to the needs in our state’s child welfare system.

How & What to Give

Bible Study Classes will collect items (for tweens and teens ages 12-21) to be coordinated by County Representatives for EVERY CHILD

These following items help to tide kids over during visits with their parents or while they're waiting for a foster placement:

  • New or gently used shoes

  • New Clothes

  • Toiletries (including ethnic hair products)

  • Gift cards – Target, Walmart, Amazon

  • Snacks non-perishable, non-refrigerated items such as fruit snacks, juice boxes, dried fruit, trail mix, crackers, etc.

There are two items that are required to be in every foster home when a child is placed and would be a blessing to have available for families to access:

  • New Fire extinguishers rated 2-A:10-B-C

  • Carbon monoxide alarm
