Central City Concern
Central City Concern helps those struggling with life’s biggest problems end or avoid homelessness and build healthy, housed, resilient, and engaged lives. Our vision is a connected community where all our neighbors have access to housing, health and economic opportunity. Together, we will end 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 2022, CCC provided a safe home for 4,542 people, connected 8,967 patients with compassionate, integrated health services and addiction recovery (including culturally specific services for the Latinx/Hispanic and Black community) and assisted 1,337 job seekers.
“Central City Concern is about changing lives, making people better and giving them an opportunity that a lot of people won’t give them.”
