Brighter Side Giving Store

A new initiative of Every Child Lane County, providing a space that speaks dignity, honor, and value over children experiencing crisis.

Brighter Side Giving Store is a resource for school-aged children in crisis. Children are invited to "shop" in a space that allows them to make choices. Our goal is to help children feel empowered and special with a sense of dignity. This experience is available by referral from community organizations including the Oregon Department of Human Services and serves children in foster care, unhoused children, and children experiencing other crises. Children will shop an assortment of coats, clothing, underwear, shoes, backpacks, books, toys & more.

Every Child presents a new paradigm for Oregonians.

Every Child gathers families in partnership with Oregon’s Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering, or fostering.

And by doing so, we’re able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.

What can you bring?
