Our Beneficiaries

We are honored to partner with these great organizations.

The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation has a multidisciplinary Line of Duty Death Response Team comprised of public safety professionals, law enforcement survivors, and citizens ready and available to respond at a moment’s notice to the request of any law enforcement agency in the state of Oregon that has experienced a line of duty death. These members ensure that the memorial service to honor the fallen law enforcement officer provides him or her with the highest honors. Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation will pay for the costs incurred by a line of duty death memorial service, including those associated with the planning, preparation, and execution of the ceremony, and to provide support for the survivors of a fallen officer.

 

Trauma Intervention Program NW is a group of specially trained volunteers who provide emotional aid and practical support and resources to victims of traumatic events and their families in the first few hours following a tragedy.

The Trauma Intervention Program volunteers support family members and friends following a suicide, natural or unexpected death; victims of crime; victims of fires; drownings; people involved in motor vehicle accidents; witnesses to crimes and people who are affected by gang and gun violence. There are over 200 volunteers responding to an average of 170 calls per month.

 

We help women find connections with other women as well as find themselves again after a breast cancer diagnosis.

Women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer oftentimes feel vulnerable. Although many women have support of loved ones, some go through the journey alone. No matter what support they have, it's a lonely journey that only those who have also walked the same path can understand.

Pink Sistas offers that connection for women though no-cost day retreats and no-cost 3 day beach retreats,and much much more.

We equip first responders in the Pacific Northwest to care for themselves, their families, and their neighbors to thrive.

Peer Support We work directly with public safety agencies to establish an ecosystem of trained co-workers who are able to listen well and provide resources for critical events and day-to-day life and work. Through this program, we seek to create sustained support for peers through formal and informal relationships that address spiritual, psychological, emotional, and physical health.

Rest Stops Our network of more than 30 secure rooms extends throughout the Pacific Northwest and into Idaho. A Rest Stop is a safe place used exclusively by first responders who are on duty when they need a time out of the eye of the public. Rooms, often hosted in churches or community centers, are stocked with small grab-and-go food items, water, WiFi, tables to write reports and comfortable chairs. These secure and safe spaces are exclusive to first responders that show appreciation and provide much-needed care to those who protect our communities.

Responders Without Borders We facilitate short-term trips to under-resourced countries to provide tactical and ethics training for law enforcement.

The mission of My Father’s House is to equip homeless families with the life skills necessary to become contributing members of their community. The vision of My Father’s House is to be a leading model for successfully transforming the lives of homeless families from dependency and need to self-sufficiency and contribution.

My Father’s House reclaims at-risk homeless families from street life by providing them with the life skills necessary to become permanently independent and productive members of our community. It is our mission that they not only become self-sufficient, but that they discover their ability to contribute to a better community. We provide a safe environment where families begin their transition in a small private studio apartment within the shelter building. Residents develop skills and confidence in parenting, vocational, financial and recovery classes. Residents receive physical and emotional support to heal relational issues and help with spiritual and family growth. Our program and services are specifically designed to address the issues significant to families with children.

Our program has a great success rate of 75 to 80%. Each adult family member is expected to meet with a case manager who helps them set attainable goals for themselves, and work with them on developing their skills, holding them accountable for their progress. Our desire is to help them achieve these goals while teaching them that it pays to work. My Father’s House is also unique amongst shelters, in that we take the entire family and we house families longer, usually 6 months, instead of the 30 day stay provided by most government funded agencies.

Special Olympics Oregon provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children, youth and adults living with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
