Big news for the North Clackamas Community!

  • A new collaboration in our community has recently emerged, that is aligned with Embrace Oregon's desire for individuals, families, and churches to be aware of the tremendous (though often invisible) needs of children in the state’s foster care system in the Portland Metro Area is being realized.
  • Through this awareness our hope is to raise up caring and committed people, connected and supported through their faith community, to serve and embrace the very children closest to God’s heart - the vulnerable.
  • Through Embrace Oregon, Compassion Connect, and the Church of North Clackamas (currently made up of about 16 participating faith communities) we are seeking to provide long-term support for the kids, families, and staff members at their North Clackamas DHS Child Welfare branch. Our goal is stronger families!

As part of this effort, the Church will be working together for 4 days on February 14-17, 2014 (President's Day weekend), to complete a huge office makeover.

Our planned scope of work will include completely renovating:

  • 5 well-worn visitation rooms (pictured above),
  • 1 staff break room,
  • 1 main lobby and play area,
  • 2 outdoor play areas, and,
  • 4 conference rooms,

all with new paint, furniture, art, storage, and toys! 

Our goal is to bring the "Church of North Clackamas" and local businesses together on this huge project as we create warm, welcoming spaces to support hurting kids, broken families, and hardworking staff. 

This makeover will be a fundamental first step in building this long-term partnership between the "Church of North Clackamas" and the North Clackamas DHS branch.

Please help us make this a reality!

Your generous donations will go to the North Clackamas DHS Makeover Project and allow us to make a significant impact on kids in foster care and the foster care community.

Note: Funds will be managed by Embrace Oregon and Compassion Connect, and used to pay for materials to enhance our local DHS facility. All labor will be volunteer, and no salaries, benefits, or perks will be paid from these funds.
