What is the Women for Change Network ?

Started in 2009, the Women for Change Network (WFCN) is a diverse group of over 100 women united to help Children First for Oregon Speak Up for Kids! WFCN offers networking and educational opportunities that empower women like you to become agents of change.  

How to Join:

Become a Monthly Donor:  Every month, women like you donate $20 - that’s only $5 a week - to belong to WFCN so Children First has the funds to advocate for policies and programs that give Oregon’s kids access to health care and ensure that kids growing up in foster care or in extreme poverty have every opportunity to succeed. Last year, WFCN monthly donations (alone) funded advocacy efforts that resulted in improving the lives of 1,605 kids in foster care, 16,666 low-income families and provided health care to 8,829 kids. Membership renews annually.
