This is the Oregon Scottish Rite’s primary charity and was established in 1980 with the mission of helping language impaired children experience the joy of expressing ideas and being clearly understood.  By partnering primarily with clinics on the campuses of the University of Oregon and Portland State University we are now able to serve over 3,000 children every year and we are growing with your help.

  • Oregon children who are dealing with Stuttering, Aphasia, Autism, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)  and a multitude of other communication disorders are being assisted by the Oregon Orient Speech & Language Charity.
  • All money given by this charity stays in Oregon helping Oregon children and our administrative costs are less than 1% of our budget.
