Bottom Line for Portland
CCC’s housing and health care choice models help more than 14,000 people a year. In 2017, CCC provided a safe home for 3,504 people, including 403 children; connected 8,937 patients with compassionate, integrated health care services; and helped 1,273 people re-enter the workforce.
“Housing was the pivotal piece to me staying clean and sober. Knowing that I would be able to go into my own apartment and lock the door behind me made all the difference. Central City Concern gave me that stability.”
