Family Activities


We are in the business of providing smiles and helping families make memories!
Every month, we offer family activities across Oregon and SW Washington at no cost. Not only do families get to come together and be a part of a close knit community, but they are able to put aside challenges, and just have fun for a day with other families who simply “get it.” Our families have made life long friends and shared countless hours of comradery with those who have shared their journey.  Family activities are offered throughout our different branches around the state. Check out Candlelighters FAMILY Connections to see what is happening around you!‚Äč
