Flourishing Oregon Communities

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


Rockwood is your neighbor. When we raise Rockwood, we raise Oregon.

We're excited to launch a powerful campaign, "Raise the Numbers," aimed at garnering support for our initiatives that are focused on:

  • Increasing Health Outcomes
  • Providing New Housing Solutions
  • Expanding Economic Development

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.
