Extreme Makeover for the Kids

This year, Portland-area churches gave a gift to help improve nine DHS child welfare offices in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties.  These “DHS makeovers” focused specifically on the visitation rooms where children visit with their families on a weekly basis. What was a dismal and shabby space is now beautiful and hopeful, communicating their worth to our community.
