Bambinos, Oregon is a prayerful non-profit ministry that aims to reduce stress in the homes of Polk County, Oregon families. We demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ by providing essential supplies, safety equipment, extra-curricular scholarships, and spiritual & emotional support. By meeting a temporary, yet essential need, relationships are built facilitating permanent transformation. Transformed families can be inspired to transform their communities.
Who we are
We are a group of volunteers in Polk County who care about our community. We volunteer our time, share our resources and when we can, provide those items that are often hard to find or afford. Our desire is to show others that there is hope.
From time to time, families find themselves in a position where they just can’t make ends meet or need someone to talk to. We are a non-profit ministry whose mission is to be there when needed to help them find that missing piece.
"Bambino" is Italian for a baby or a young child. It is also a name used for Baby Jesus. Our name demonstrates that our focus is helping the families who surround the babies and young children of Polk County. It is also a wonderful reminder that Jesus was born into poverty and knows and is touched by the needs of this fragile, yet resilient part of our community.
Why is our logo two little sparrows with their nest. Here is what Scripture says about sparrows:
Psalm 84:3 "Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God."
Matthew 10:29-31 "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows."
There is a famous hymn that says, "His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me." He sees and He cares.
Our tagline is, "Supporting families in need," because that is what we're all about here at Bambinos. If you ever find that you have a need, please come and see us. And if you are looking for a way to bless others in your community, please come see us. We have a few ideas.
