Giving Back

Mark and I have a special passion for children and teens on the fringes of our community. Displaced kids aged 18-21 often have very little access to safe housing. Married later in life, Mark and I knew we would not have our own children. In the past year Juan (18) and Rajabu (19) have come to live with us and we love having them as part of our family!
We work hard so we can engage more with our city and where we live. For every closing I have we rotate giving between three local non-profit organizations that support children and families: WITH LOVE gives area foster parents emergency clothing and furniture. NW CHILDRENbS OUTREACH provides clothing to children ages 0-18 city-wide. HUMAN SOLUTIONS is a family-centered shelter that keeps families together and in safe housing in Portland.
All my best,
Claire Widmark-Wright
