Our Work

Learning doesn’t begin and end in the classroom.

Transforming children into educated, independent adults is the job of the entire community. The All Hands Raised Partnership gathers Multnomah County’s diverse efforts and harnesses them to support kids before, during and after school—from cradle to career.

All Hands Raised serves as the backbone organization for the All Hands Raised Partnership. Our role is to gather Multnomah County’s diverse efforts and align them in ways that strengthen supports for kids. We bring together six school districts with county, city, business, nonprofit and higher education leaders to help individuals and organizations understand how they fit together to create change. And we remain true to our roots stewarding parent-led fundraising in Portland Public Schools (PPS) and managing the PPS Parent Equity Fund.
