The folks in the Cradle to Career Partnership in Malheur County spent some time this week discussing “Children of Poverty,” the series by the Enterprise.
The Enterprise sat in and what’s clear is that many people are passionate about helping families and children in Malheur County. This is a group of people representing nonprofits such as Community in Action and government agencies such as the Malheur County Health Department. They had wise observations about the reporting so far – and ideas about what needs to be done to drive down Malheur County’s chronically high rate of poverty.
We published Part 4 this week and wrap up with Part 5 next week. We urge you to read the series to learn more about an issue that touches every aspect of life in our communities. This is a challenge not to be left just to nonprofits and government service agencies. This will take each of us raising a hand and asking, “How can I help?”
If you have observations or ideas about a solution, please send a note to Editor Les Zaitz: [email protected].
Here’s Part 4 and some of the other news from our award-winning news team:
These two would like a home too

What’s better than a ginger boy? Two ginger boys!
These boys are 11 months old. They will be a year on July 1. Wouldn’t it be great for them to celebrate their first birthday in their loving forever home with their family? They are very silly and playful, but also love to be pet and get loves.
