Birch Community Services

Birch Community Services began in 1992 with a donated bag of squished bread on the front porch of Barry and Suzanne Birch.  They shared the bread with some single moms and other families in need in their neighborhood. Within the following weeks, other food retailers who had heard of the Birchs’ spirit of giving were donating their surplus for re-distribution by the Birchs to a growing number of needy families. The organization has steadily grown to become one of the largest food-distribution programs in Oregon, and has been within the top 25 organizations in the Portland Business Journal’s annual list of “Top 100 Portland Non-Profits” and has never received a penny in government funds.

 

Impact

Birch Community Services redistributed 9.5 million pounds of food and clothing last year to working, struggling families who we also held accountable to achieve their self-stated goals. in 2017 they served 610 families, 62 of which graduated from their financial literacy program.

 
 

The Sustainable Families Program

The goal of our program is to help people achieve their goals. We teach financial classes where participants learn about budgeting and saving. On average, families who graduate from our program reduce their monthly debt and increase their emergency savings. Accountability is a key component in the success we’ve experienced in addressing the roots of poverty.

 
 

Sustainability

BCS is 68% sustainable from an operating cash perspective. By developing internal revenue streams, and recycling responsibly, we do our best to embody financial sustainability and accountability to our donors. We take economic, environmental, and social sustainability seriously.
