Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to Kinship House
This $2,000 Donation Will Supply Essential Tools for Foster Child Therapy
PORTLAND, Ore. – November 4, 2014 – Windermere Stellar recently presented a check at its Northeast Portland branch to Kinship House, a nonprofit organization also headquartered in Northeast Portland that supports the complex needs of foster children, as well as their families and guardians.
One of the many ways that Kinship House responds to the needs of foster children is through counseling and therapy services for individuals and families. Connecting with children who have experienced trauma requires essential art and play therapy tools, which the $2,000 donation from the Windermere Foundation will supply. Through therapy, children improve their daily functioning skills and prepare for permanent placement with parents or caregivers.
Windermere Stellar has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Kinship House, Windermere Stellar associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation – a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2 million to programs that support low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
