How We Help
Our diverse staff strives to act as a “safety net to the safety net” increasing access to health care and social services across Oregon.
Donated Health Care
We manage a network of volunteer providers that treat uninsured clients after they are referred by their primary care provider.
We partner with Providence which allows our clients to access vital medications at affordable prices (usually $0-$4 copay).
Enrollment & Health Coverage Support
We support enrollment in a range of health insurance options, ensuring those options remain affordable.
Social Support & Services
We are proud to partner with more than 200 partners statewide to offer vital non medical support.
