Our initiatives are born out of our neighbors demand for a place to earn, learn, and belong. We are always looking for more ways to collaborate and build prosperity in our communities.
East County Community Health
ECCH is a permanent, self-sustaining team that improves the health outcomes of East Multnomah County. We are a diverse group of Community Health Workers (CHWs) that are led by a professional staff, and are integrated into the Community Development Corporation of Oregon’s networks.
Rockwood Food Systems Collaborative
We use food, nutritional education, business incubation, and agricultural development to help our neighbors attain better health outcomes, greater equity, and more prosperity.
Oregon Community Capital
We exist to raise capital and invest it in Oregon’s Opportunity Zones. We bring capital to under-invested communities so that investors earn returns and our neighbors benefit.
These initiatives are those that have found success and have been spun out to our community members where they can be run sustainably and locally.
A Shalom Network of churches is a diverse collaborative of 43 faith-communities. They share resources and initiatives connect our neighbors together.
Successfully spun out to a diverse, local leadership team in 2018.
In 2018, we developed the model for a legal aid clinic. In 2019, a group of Shalom Network Churches used elements of our model, which grew into Immigrant Connection PDX which launched with the formal support of the Department of Justice.
