Are you wondering how you can help during the Covid-19 crisis? You can encourage the teen and tween girls and boys in our Design Studios by supplying care packages that we will drop off on the doorsteps of our youth (ages 9-16) in the Portland metro area!
Many of our youth rely on school and gatherings like the Adorned in Grace Design Studio to provide structure and healthy social contact. We want to let them know that people are thinking about and praying for them while they aren't able to meet in person.
We encourage including items you already have, can order online, or are easily accessible during a grocery trip. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text us at 971- 231-4823 for more info!
If possible, please package your items in a small shopping/gift bag or gift box. If you don't have those items on hand, we will supply them. You may deliver your items to our SE Portland location, or depending on your location, we can also arrange a pick up. We are also happy to provide a donation receipt upon request.
Items we are collecting: -toilet paper -kleenex -tooth care supplies -hand sanitizer/sanitizing wipes/soap -toiletries (shampoo, body wash, lotion, etc.) -homemade face masks/supplies to make DIY "new-sew" masks -individually packaged snack items -beauty/fashion items (hair scrunchies, nail polish, jewelry, etc.) -stationary items -youth-friendly Bible or Christian devotional -games -craft supplies -Amazon, grocery, fast food, coffee gift cards ($5-$10 max)

Our mission is to bring churches together to serve their neighborhoods. We do this through free health clinics for the underinsured and noninsured, anti trafficking efforts, and more. Our vision is to see churches and individuals everywhere choosing unity over division and compassion over complacency.
The brokenness and division in the world is too big for just one church, organization, or person to handle. We believe neighborhoods suffer when churches compete and passionate people don't have an outlet to serve, so we create tools that invite people to put their faith in action and unite churches to address their neighborhood's issues together.
We understand how it feels to see the suffering in your neighborhood and not know what to do about it-and to not know how your own talents and time could help alleviate that suffering. For the past ten years we have been mobilizing people of faith to serve together in their own backyards using proven models of service that have helped bring physical and spiritual healing to thousands of broken people.
Too often indecision, fear, and apathy cause us not to act. Too often, misunderstandings and disagreements cause the people of God’s Church not to work together to reach the broken and bring hope to a hurting world. If we let these barriers prevent us from doing anything, we miss out on the incredible things God is waiting to do in and through us. You may believe that you can’t do anything to address the problems in your neighborhood. But we want you to know that you can do this. And we want to help you get there.
