“Every Child relentlessly fights for children in crisis and commits to finding safe, nurturing places where they can flourish.”

—Megan Boerste, Executive Director at Every Child Douglas County

 

Fighting for children in crisis

Every Child has been operating in Douglas County since 2015. They gather community members in partnership with Oregon’s Department of Human Services to aid vulnerable children and families. In particular, they provide a great deal of support to children in foster care, connecting children with foster families and offering welcome packs and emergency items to support these children.

“Every Child relentlessly fights for children in crisis and commits to finding safe, nurturing places where they can flourish,” said Megan Boerste, executive director at Every Child Douglas County. The organization makes an effort to connect individuals, businesses, families and faith communities with acute needs of foster children locally.

 

Volunteering time

Numerous staff members of Gordon Wood Insurance & Financial Services in Roseburg, Oregon work directly with Every Child. Some serve on the board of directors, while others donate money and volunteer their time to participate in events. In 2021, Gordon Wood Insurance volunteered in a golf tournament fundraiser for Every Child. This year, they volunteered as a team at the annual Foster Families Appreciation Night at their local wildlife safari.

 

“It was a really great experience to see all the families and children interact with the animals and see the smiles on all their faces.”

—Keri Winn, Producer at Gordon Wood Insurance and
Board President of Every Child Douglas County

 

The staff of Gordon Wood Insurance continues to help Every Child whenever they can. They intend to assist Every Child in raising additional funds for their various projects, including providing YMCA memberships for teens in Douglas County, family passes to local family fun centers and car seats for infants.
