When asked to find and create a case study on an ethical entity, I had no problem, as I am lucky to work for what I consider an ethical entity. Oregon Child Development Coalition is a large non-profit private agency, and while its headquarters is located in Wilsonville Oregon, Oregon Child Development Coalition is located through-out the State of Oregon. Oregon Child Development Coalition is divided into ten regional areas, which are referred to as counties: Malheur, Umatilla, Jefferson, Hood River/Wasco, Multnomah, Marion, Washington, Polk, Klamath and Jackson. Oregon Child Development Coalition’s structure includes two governing bodies, a board of directors and a parent policy council. At the management level, Oregon Child Development Coalition has an Executive Director, Fiscal Director, Human Resources Director, Program Development Director, and Operations Director. Oregon Child Development Coalition’s funding includes many sources, but its biggest single funding source in the Office of Head Start (OHS) at the federal level. The second largest funding source, at a much lower amount, is the State of Oregon’s Department of Education (OPK). Oregon Child Development Coalition receives many smaller amounts of funding from both local governments and other non-profit organizations. Oregon Child Development Coalition is highly invested in the education industry, especially in Early Childhood Education often referred to as Preschool which is ages of three to five. Headstart Services drive the education format that Oregon Child Development Coalition uses within its classrooms.

Headstart services are not limited to education only, but also include 3

Oregon Child Development Coalition also provides traditional center-based childcare to over 3000 children a year and Migrant Education within local school districts to another 1000 children. Oregon Child Development Coalition has a very simple official mission; “The Oregon Child Development Coalition is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through dynamic leadership, advocacy and a range of unique and essential services promoting growth and independence.” The mission comes from group agreements formed from several strategic meetings that allowed all stakeholders a true voice in the development of not only the mission, but also long- term goals. These meetings are close to what Rawls might have considered the setting the “Original Position”. With each discussion, all points of view are taken into consideration on an
