Child Abuse Prevention
For more than three decades, Our Children Oregon (previously operating as the Children’s Trust Fund of Oregon) has focused on child abuse prevention and strengthening Oregon’s at-risk families. Through strategic investments in local and evidence-based child abuse prevention programs, we champion advocacy efforts to protect children.
Policy & Advocacy
In order to make Oregon a place where all children can thrive, we must ensure an even playing field for children to reach their full potential. To provide this foundation, children and their families must have access to the resources that they need to thrive. This access works like a power grid, but it is patchy and uneven in some areas. Policy changes and financial investments can help us repair and expand Oregon’s resource grid — so that every family and every child has the “energy” to achieve their full potential.
Research & Data
Using a racial equity lens, our data-informed strategy and policy recommendations spur legislators and public officials to back systemic solutions, investing in, and elevating the voices of, Oregon’s children in greatest need. By providing reliable data reflecting different regions and demographics, we enrich discussions about child well-being and support child advocates and decision-makers in better serving their communities.
Youth Advocacy & Engagement
Through advocacy and engagement opportunities, our programs create space for and champion youth and young adults, amplifying their voices in support of just policies and investments across the state.
