"Hope begins with YOU and then another you and another you until it becomes US."

~Pope Francis



Oregon I.C.E. empowers parish schools to embrace inclusion of learners of different abilities. YOU are invited to help Inclusive Catholic Education of Oregon, Inc. in its grass-roots approach to building support for inclusion of students with special needs in local Catholic Schools. Come learn what area schools are doing to open their doors to diverse learners and what you can do to help.





Building Support for Inclusion in Catholic Schools



Join Us for this Fundraising Luncheon to Show Your Support




Oregon Inclusive Catholic Education (I.C.E.) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization which promotes the inclusion of students with learning disabilities in their parish schools. We believe that every child has the right to a Catholic education, to attend the same school as their siblings and neighbors, and to learn alongside their typically-developing peers. Oregon I.C.E. works with educators, parents, and the Catholic Archdiocese of Portland to make this a reality.




Since the inception of Oregon I.C.E., nearly five years ago, we have held three inclusion seminars. This is now an annual event. Each seminar has included speakers who are nationally recognized experts in the field of inclusion in Catholic education.




Some of our other noteworthy accomplishments:


  • Provided funding to send educators from parish schools to the All-Born-In Conference on inclusive education
  • Attended the Vatican Conference on Catechesis and Persons with Disabilities
  • Attended three National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) conferences
  • Represented Oregon I.C.E. at the United Nations

This year we are providing funding to send ten (10) educators from the Archdiocese of Portland to the All-Born-In conference this May.




We gladly accept donations made payable to:
