Central City Concern
Central City Concern helps those struggling with life’s biggest problems to end or avoid homelessness and build healthy, housed, resilient and engaged lives. Our vision is a future in which nobody in our community has to experience the pain and harm of homelessness.
Bottom Line for Portland
Every year, more than 13,000 people turn to Central City Concern for compassionate support to become self-sufficient and productive. In 2021, CCC provided a safe home for 3,896 people, connected 9,283 patients with compassionate, integrated health services and addiction recovery (including culturally specific services for the Latinx/Hispanic and Black community) and assisted 1,308 job seekers.
“The structure of being in a CCC program allowed me to be myself and take things at my own pace. When you get to know all these people and create these relationships, sobriety is the glue that keeps everybody together.”
Courday, former CCC program participant
