WHO WE ARE
Ensuring Every Oregon Child has a Chance to Thrive
We envision an Oregon where each child is seen, nurtured, and valued for the unique contributions they bring to our state. In our roles as advocates, connectors, and educators, we bring communities together to share best practices, learn from experience, and inform through data. Our energies are focused on uplifting Oregon families, so children across the state can reach their full potential.
How We Help
Whole-child advocacy recognizes the interconnectedness of systems and takes a holistic approach to improve child well-being so that children and youth have the opportunities and resources to live to their full potential with self-determination and freedom from systemic oppression. Our Children Oregon seeks a future where all children and their families have what they need to thrive, and to experience happiness, belonging, and safety in their homes and communities. We are the only whole-child children’s advocacy organization in Oregon.
