Event Details

PROJECT CARE

The Multifamily NW PDX Service Committee and the Multifamily NW Foundation present Project Care.

Project Care is an annual opportunity to give back to the community while creating special memories for the children we support. Won't you join us in supporting two great charities this year:

Janus Youth Programs is a leader in creating innovative, community-based services which enhance the quality of life for children, youth, and families. We work in partnership with others to create a safe and healthy community. 

Boys & Girls Aid seeks lifelong connections for children growing up without families. We help the almost 5,000 children living in Oregon's foster care system resolve their past traumas and connect them with a forever family.
