PCL grew out of a need to increase opportunity for all Portland’s children. Historical policies and practices have a direct relationship with disparities in outcomes for children navigating poverty and children of color. PCL strives to change this trajectory by supporting community-based programs that help prepare children for school, support them to be successful in and out of school, and eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in children’s outcomes
We fund programs for children and youth ages prenatal through 24 years in areas that support positive early development, school engagement and academic achievement, high school graduation, and family safety and stability. Our six program areas are early childhood education, afterschool programs, mentoring, child abuse prevention and intervention, foster care, and hunger relief.
