Embrace Oregon
  • Champions Academy

Embrace Oregon connects caring community members with vulnerable children and families in partnership with the Department of Human Services. We are dedicated to the flourishing of every child.

Each day in our community, children in crisis show up at the Department of Human Services (DHS) in need of a safe home where they can flourish. In the Portland Metro Area, hundreds of children enter the foster care system each year while DHS faces a crisis shortage of foster homes.

Because family is necessary. Because neighborhood relationships matter. Because you have something to bring to the table. You matter.

What if you became a foster parent? What if you volunteered at your local DHS office? What ideas do you have?

Every Child needs you. Learn more and how you can get involved at EMBRACEOREGON.ORG
