Project Transformation Pacific Northwest began organizing in early 2016 when the United Methodist Church brought together a Project Transformation alumna with two former site church leaders, who had relocated from Tennessee and North Texas respectively. As conversations spread and excitement from local church and community leaders increased, this led to a desire to bring the program to the Portland/Vancouver area in the Pacific Northwest. With support from Project Transformation National, the Project Transformation Pacific Northwest Chapter will launch in the greater Vancouver area in 2017 with 25 college interns, several sponsoring churches and approximately 150 underserved children. Once established, our vision is to expand the program to other parts of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
