Project Lemonade’s mission is to inspire confidence and self-esteem in Oregon’s school-aged foster youth. We provide basic needs, job skills training, and WISHs to support educational enrichment so foster youth can thrive in school and in life.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2019, we supported foster youth with the following: 2,000 with clothing, shoes and backpacks; 9 with paid summer internships; and 60 with WISHs.
“Brought my girls to shop and they had fun! They didn’t feel like foster kids. They are teenagers and this is the first time going to an event like this that they didn’t have the feeling of being less than.” —Foster parent
