Partner with Women of Vision

Shining hope in the darkest places

We invite you to partner with Columbia-Willamette Women of Vision. A partner is a woman who:

  • will speak up for children and women who have no voice
  • will take a stand against oppression and injustice
  • will use her unique gifts and skills to lift up those who only need a hand in order to stand up on their own
  • respects all people
  • has a thankful heart
  • whose greatest desire is to honor God with her time and talents
  • Our chapter begins every fiscal year (Oct. 1) with 0 partners, and so we ask each one of you to renew your commitment to stand with us by making a gift of any size you choose today. Every donor is a partner! Click here to make a donation online right now.

    This is just the first step. We would welcome you to pray for our projects, attend and invite friends to our events, and volunteer with us. Please contact us (go to "contact us" tab) to discuss how you can get involved. We look forward to talking with you!

    A good first step is to join The Heart of the Matter small group study. It's a great way to meet other women in our chapter and better understand the work of World Vision. Watch our calendar for details. If you're on our mailing list, you will receive an evite.


    Women of Vision in Action

    Responding to needs in our own community

    Columbia-Willamette Women of Vision is deeply aware of the challenges children and families face right here in our own community. We are responding! Each month, September through May, we ask you to join us in hands-on service to organizations that can use our woman-power! In the past we have served at Medical Teams International, Union Gospel Mission, Birch Community Services, Shepherd's Door, Northwest Children's Outreach, Feed the Hungry, and West Women's Shelter. We also support the work of Door to Grace. Please make sure you contact us to be on our mailing list so you receive invitations to serve.


    Pray

    "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually." 1 Chronicles 16:11

    “Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” Mother Teresa

    We would not enter into the complex world of transformational development, trafficking, injustice, and human suffering without calling on the strength of the Lord to guide the way and lead us. Please join us in praying for the children of the world, both far and near, and for families. We post specific prayer requests in our monthly e-update. We also "meet" once a month in teleconference to pray corporately.


    Advocacy

    Be their voice, stand when they cannot

    We are citizens of the most powerful nation in the world, with the most resources and influence to effect change in the developing world. The U.S. has a proud history of helping through our generous USAID programs. Please use your voice -- phone calls, emails, letters, visits -- to encouage your Senators and Representatives to continue the effort to lift the least of these out of deep poverty.

    Women of Vision was instrumental in the passage of the Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act and other bills that help vulnerable children and families. When we work together, we convey a powerful, united message. Go to the World Vision advocacy website to learn about current issues. Your voice is powerful.

    Thank you. You make a difference!
