Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Central City Concern provides housing, healthcare, and supportive employment programming to people impacted by poverty, addiction, serious mental illness, trauma, and chronic illness. We provide help and hope to the most vulnerable members of our community. Our goal is to give individuals and families the tools they need so they can live happy, healthy, productive lives.

Central City Concern meets its mission through innovative, outcome-based strategies that support personal and community transformation, including:

1. Direct access to housing which supports lifestyle change.

2. Integrated healthcare services that are highly effective in engaging people who are often alienated from mainstream systems.

3. The development of peer relationships that nurture and support personal transformation and recovery.

4. Attainment of income through employment or accessing benefits.

Central City Concern operates 29 residential communities and a healthcare system that includes primary care, urgent care, chronic disease management, inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment facilities, office-based care and street outreach to those suffering from serious mental illness, and a variety of supportive employment programs for those who are ready or are becoming ready to rejoin the workforce or resume educational opportunities.

Central City Concern operates a range of housing options--from low-barrier SROs to alcohol- and drug-free family apartment communities and from transitional to permanent--so that all individuals and families experiencing homelessness can find safe shelter. All of our residents have access to a wide range of staff who can either meet people where they are at or help them transition to the next step of healthy living. These staff members include Community Building Assistants, Recovery Mentors, Case Managers, and Employment Specialists. Many of our residential staff have had personal experience in living successfully with a serious mental illness or overcoming addiction, and are powerful examples of the good things that are possible for anyone who comes to Central City Concern for help.

In 2016, Central City Concern added 100 new units of housing to our portfolio to help meet the critical need for housing for low income individuals and families in our community. Currently we have 3 more projects underway:

• Charlotte B. Rutherford Place (6905 N Interstate; opening summer 2018). Named after a pioneering Portland African American family.

• Blackburn Building w/Eastside Health & Recovery Center (25 NE 122nd Ave.; opening summer 2019). Named after our President and CEO Emeritus Ed Blackburn, who was instrumental in the Housing is Health initiative that began funding for these three buildings.

• Hazel Heights (12621 SE Stark St.; opening summer2018). Named for the Hazelwood neighborhood.

Central City Concern continues to expand our healthcare services so that more people living on the margins of society can receive the medical care they deserve.

We are enhancing our efforts to provide culturally specific services to the Latino and African American communities.
