Mission Statement

Our primary mission is youth development in the States of Oregon and Washington. We do that in three ways:

1. Interactive traffic safety safety presentations at high schools.

2. Drug and alcohol presentations at high schools.

3. We have a registered therapy dog named Stella. Stella visits children at elementary and middle schools to facilitate reading programs. Her participation is a boost to their self-confidence and socialization, which improves their reading ability. Stella also goes to hospice and hospitals to cheer up patients, visitors and staff.

We reached 12,000 people this year.

We support Operation Lifesaver- a nonprofit public safety education and awareness organization dedicated to reducing collisions, fatalities and injuries at highway-rail crossings and trespassing on or near railroad tracks. 

Operation Lifesaver's national office in Alexandria, VA, supports state programs, developing videos, educational brochures, instructional information and other materials for audiences of all ages. They have state coordinators located in all 50 states.
