Expect to enjoy yourself at this momentous gala, but please don't forget to bring your checkbook!

Mercy Corps Northwest LIFE ClassYour presence and generosity makes a difference
Right now, Mercy Corps NW is delivering its successful LIFE program that gives women inmates a second chance. Through LIFE, women prisoners at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, OR learn important skills for life, business, and pro-social behavior. LIFE aims to successfully reintegrate formerly incarcerated individuals back into the community and help to establish self-sufficiency and economic stability. Successful integration reduces re-incarceration probability. This not only saves taxpayers money, but enriches our communities while bringing stability to them.
