 “Let’s celebrate
all the moments
that over time add up to
a young person’s
deep transformation.
That’s Caldera’s work.”

         —MOsley WOtta
We’re thrilled to announce that Stories of Change this year raised
over $350,000 in Portland and over $100,000 in Central Oregon
of direct support for our youth program.

Through that support, there will be many more “AFTER” stories
like those of Doe and Big Bird, the two young people
featured in our film at the event (rewatch here).
Thanks again to all our supporters and sponsors. We couldn’t do this work without you!
