Here are some of community organizations I support:

Wallace Medical Concern

Healthcare for the uninsured in the Portland area.

WMC is celebrating over a quarter century of providing high quality care to individuals and famiiles in the Portland region who would otherwise face barriers to getting the care they need. Through a network of over 350 volunteers, WMC provides basic medical care, and a gateway to specialty services through referrals and partnership with the communities’ largest medical institutions. The healthcare needs of patients and their families are reflected in the operations of the clinic which allows for services to evolve in alignment with the community’s needs, while the team at WMC closely manages program costs in order to leverage the most value from each dollar donated.


p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through art, recreation and education.

To truly exit homelessness, kids must develop the internal strength, skills and foresight to make healthy choices. p:ear provides a safe, non-judgmental environment in which youth are trusted to outgrow unproductive and harmful behaviors. We offer individualized mentoring and education programs in a safe, reliable and intimate setting designed to foster trust, build self-esteem and to teach homeless and transitional kids – who all too often are regarded by society as disposable, “hopeless cases” – that they are valuable individuals with a future who have something vital to contribute to this community.

p:ear staff and volunteers serve as mentors, friends, and role models, while p:ear’s unique programs create opportunities for young people to grow intellectually, express themselves constructively, communicate in positive ways and engage in meaningful interactions with the larger community of Portland. Staff is committed to being there for p:ear youth over the long-haul to share failures and successes, mundane events as well as life-altering milestones.
