Building Fund

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO CARRY OUT OUR MISSION!

Since 2010, CCEP has been operating a summer program with an expansion plan to construct a center by 2015, so that year around services can be provided for the children of Eastern Portland.

Since the program's inception in 2010, we have turned away over 200 children because of space limitations. Currently, our classes are held outdoors, under tarpaulins, used to protect the children from the elements.  However, all too often, classes are interrupted or abbreviated because of inclement weather.  A center would not only eliminate these problems, but would provide the space needed to implement all components of our exciting program.

Please help us with our fund raising efforts by submittng your donations today.
