About  the prior benefitting partners


Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic

Since 1970, Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) has offered quality care with dignity at their Central District location.  Their second clinic location in Othello is closer to the 75% of OBCC families who have moved to south Seattle and south King County for more affordable housing. OBCC provides medical, dental, behavioral health, sickle cell disease care, sports rehab, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiology and nutrition services for babies, children and teens — regardless of a family’s ability to pay. They provide coordinated, whole-person care that addresses root causes of illness — social, economic and environmental.

Family First Community Center

This center opens on June 26th, and will serve people of all ages in a new 21,000 SF state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the Benson Hill/Cascade community of Renton. The served area was annexed to the City of Renton in 2008, and historically has been lacking resources and a community gathering space. Family First Community Center is a joint project of Doug Baldwin and the City of Renton, and prides itself on being the first community center in Washington State with a health clinic that offers medical, dental and behavioral health services all under one roof. They plan to offer a holistic approach to a person’s wellbeing by offering a range of programming for recreation, education, wellness and togetherness.

One Love Community Fridge

One Love Community Fridge (OLCF) is a grassroots non-profit that partners with community groups, schools, local and regional farms, chefs and food purveyors to tackle head-on the twofold problems of food waste and food insecurity. OLCF works to eradicate food insecurity and malnutrition, and the stigma associated with both, through an integrated, multi-generational, and inclusive movement that centers access to food, nutrition education, and sustainability.  The Community Fridges’ services go beyond what most in the food pantry network are able to do by offering 24/7 access (importantly including evenings and weekends), and freshly crafted meals from local businesses, which is made possible by the direct donation-to-distribution model.  This program began in New York City and is currently working to expand to Seattle.  In partnership with Champions of Change, OLCF will bring together a network of local chefs and farms to distribute food in the same accessible way with the assistance of local, trusted community groups.

The benefitting partners of Champion of Change share three important values:


Dignity and respect for those they serve is at the core of its operations


The goal to empower those who seek to improve their lives and circumstances for their families


A commitment to collaborate with other organizations to remove barriers to access for basic needs, support networks, health care, skills training and education

There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out the river.

We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.
