- ONE LIFE is a non-profit charitable community service organization that
serves at risk youth, individuals and families in Clark County Washington.
We believe it’s about social justice, ending hunger, providing education, helping people become free from poverty and seeing every person treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. We want to give generously out of what we have to those who have not. We want to be known as a place that really cares about the individual. Where we hear each person’s story and we listen more than talk. An organization where we see past the exterior and the circumstances in people’s lives, but instead focus on the potential destiny that is in each one of us, and helping meet the needs of an individual one life at a time.
As Mother Teresa put it “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty". Our greatest joy is to see lives transformed out of poverty by compassion, acceptance, respect, service and love.
- Dear Friends of One Life,
In 2013 ONE LIFE was able to provide emergency food boxes to 854 households (2521 people) in Clark County. Our Harvest Share program provided fresh produce to over 1192 people. Through these two programs in 2013, ONE LIFE gave away 57,414 pounds of food.
One Life lost its location to serve our clients in May of 2013 and had to close and relocate. We were graciously offered a new space at New Hope Foursquare church. The space needed to be remolded and after a generous grant from Meyers Memorial Trust, fundraisers and volunteer labor we were able to complete our remodel and reopen in March of 2014.
The Board of ONE LIFE is excited to feed the hungry in Clark County again. We are also excited to begin again our Nutrition Education programs as well as our giving garden.
Thank you so much for partnering with us to make a difference in the lives of families in our community. Without your support we would not be able to do the work that we do. Donations can be accepted on our website, our Facebook page, through the United Way or by mail. We look forward to partnering again with you in 2014.
