Challenge

Oregon has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, reports in July 2010 showed it at 10.6%. This has a direct effect on our local children. Many basic needs are unmet because of our current joblessness in Oregon. Families do not have the money to buy new shoes for their children, which means they suffer when the temperatures start to drop.

Solution

Northwest Children's Outreach's mission is to love those in need with the love of Christ, by providing for their most basic needs. Our organization is 100% volunteer-run, with no paid staff, so all donations go straight to the families who need them. Because NCO is 100% volunteer and all the warehouse space is donated, our "overhead" costs are less than 1% of our annual budget.
Donors can respond to a true need in our area by donating funds for children's athletic shoes. Over 27,000 local children received basic resources from our organization in 2009.

Long-Term Impact

Children that are properly clothed are more likely to attend school in the winter and thus finish their education for a brighter future.
