Pass it On
PCL Early Childhood programs are linked with better reasoning and language skills and with healthy social and emotional development.
PCL programs that engage students, link them with academic support and role models, and provide stability and resiliency for parents lead to healthier families and a stronger city.
PCL programs help level the playing field for children and families facing racial and ethnic disparities so they can succeed in their home, in their school and in their neighborhood.
Created by city voters in 2002, the Portland Children's Levy invests in programs designed to help children arrive at school ready to learn, provide safe and constructive after-school alternatives for kids, prevent child abuse, neglect and family violence, help foster kids succeed and mitigate childhood hunger.
