Flourishing Oregon Communities

We work to make Oregon's poorest communities places where everyone can earn, learn, and belong.

Our Initiatives

As a community development corporation in Oregon, we serve as a hub or backbone to provide ladders for climbing from poverty into prosperity. Our work improves health outcomes, integrates faith-based and family service programs, creates public-private partnerships, expands the supply of economical housing, and encourages and assists commercial development.
