Promoting a community of services for children and families in Deschutes County
Deschutes Children's Foundation manages and maintains four non-profit service centers in Bend, Redmond, and La Pine for children and families. Our 28 partner organizations receive rent-free facility and office space and no-cost, on-site property management. Deschutes Children's Foundation relieves these non-profits of the burden of facility overhead, allowing our partners to focus on their core missions: caring for over 20,000 of our community's most vulnerable citizens each year.
Can you imagine your life without a monthly rent or mortgage payment? What greater impact could you make on the lives of others? Deschutes Children's Foundation has been providing the freedom to dream big to non-profits in our community since 1990.

Deschutes Children's Foundation and the Heart of Oregon Corps YouthBuild program is pleased to announce a community partnership with Webfoot Painting for a 9/11 Day of Remembrance Service Project. Youth Build trainees will be assisted and mentored by a team of Webfoot Painting professionals in painting the exterior of the Becky Johnson Community Center in Redmond, which is managed by Deschutes Children's Foundation. The project will span a week as trainees work alongside Webfoot to prep, paint, and put the final touches on the building. Primary painting will take place on the actual Day of Service on Wednesday, 9/11 and all other work will wrap up by the end of the week in order to have it ready for the Latino Community Association's Festival of Cultures event on Saturday, 9/14.

Riverhouse Invitational Benefits The Every Kid Fund
The Riverhouse presented a $3,220 check to The Every Kid Fund, raised from the 29th Annual Riverhouse Invitational golf tournament held at River’s Edge Golf Course. Corporate sponsors partnered with The Riverhouse, including Combined Communications, Sysco Food Services of Portland, Eberhard’s Dairy, Cascade Lakes Brewing Company, Boyd’s Coffee Co, and Robberson Ford.
The Every Kid Fund provides much needed scholarships to school aged children in need so they can participate in after-school activities. Wayne Purcell, Owner and Operations Manager of The Riverhouse, said, “The Every Kid Fund is a life saver for many kids. Parent’s budgets are extremely tight in this economy and not all kids can afford to participate in school sports and other extra-curricular activities that are so important to their overall development. We feel every kid should have the opportunity to participate in activities, regardless of their financial situation.” Read the complete story here.
