About FOTCCO & The Ranch

Meet our partners, Friends of the Children Central Oregon! FOTCCO is a nonprofit that selects children who face multiple systemic obstacles and commits to being with them for the long term, 12+ years. They are doing some awesome work in the community, including opening a ranch where the kids will learn all the skills they need to succeed in their future. The Ranch is located on the Old Bend-Redmon Highway and will be going through a renovation in the next few years that will allow every square inch of the house to be a learning opportunity. From learning agriculture, to cooking in the kitchen with COCC, to having a STEM Lab, these kids will find out what they want their future to look like. Find out more about our friends @

Color Me Hopeful – FriendRasier!

To kick of our partnership, Kendall Bend sponsored their largest annual fundraiser, Color Me Hopeful. This night was all about the kids in our community, and how we can help them grow into successful individuals. FOTCCO announced that they will be expanding into La Pine this year following the opening of the ranch, which means they will be serving more children in our local community.
