About Us

With an acute focus on racial equity, All Hands Raised brings together practitioners and leaders from education, business, government and non-profits to ensure the success of every child in Multnomah County, from cradle to career.

To do this, All Hands Raised provides the framework, coaching and tools that empower schools and organizations to improve educational outcomes for more than 220,000 children and youth, ages 0–24.

A founding pioneer in the national StriveTogether Cradle to Career network, Multnomah County achieved “Proof Point” status in 2018 – a mark of the shared progress we are making and maintaining in our community.

All Hands Raised serves the seven urban school districts in Portland and Multnomah County: Centennial, David Douglas, Gresham-Barlow, Multnomah Education Service District, Parkrose, Portland Public Schools, and Reynolds.

Our unique history, grounded in a commitment to equity, strong governance structure and dedicated staff, ensures that we continue to make progress in our mission to help all children, youth and young adults in Multnomah County achieve their full potential.

Our nimble team currently ranks #8 on Oregon Business Magazine’s 100 Best Small Nonprofits to work for.
