About Us

Our Intention


The Multiple Heritage Family Resource Center (MHFRC) promotes an understanding of what is needed for transracially adopted, and multiethnic, and multiracial children to transcend generally accepted stereotypes and to embrace the privilege of being part of a transracial, multiethnic, or multiracial family.

The center will provide education and mentoring opportunities for children and families to help them appreciate and navigate the unique challenges and rewards they face.

Our Path


Founded in November 2005, MHFRC was stipulated as a non profit corporation by the State of Oregon on March 31, 2006.

The First United Methodist Church on 18th and Jefferson in the Goose Hollow area of Portland provides space for our board meetings.  The Multicultural Student Center at Portland State University has hosted our activities.  In addition, the Native American Student and Community Center hosted our Dance Around the World event on May 5, 2006.

The MHFRC will provide a setting where children and families can learn to be culturally competent through example and through education without fear of criticism, racism, or isolation.
