Central City Concern


To end homelessness by providing housing, health care and supportive employment services to people impacted by trauma, addiction, serious mental illness, chronic disease and multigenerational poverty. CCC’s housing and health-care choice models help more than 14,000 people a year.

Bottom Line for Portland

In 2016, CCC provided a safe home for 3,510 people, including almost 300 children; connected 8,324 very poor and very sick patients with compassionate, integrated health care services; and helped 956 people re-enter the workforce.

“Once I had housing, I was able to work on everything else—my recovery, going to school, paying off student loans, getting employed and off public assistance, doing therapy with my children, and teaching my kids right from wrong.”

—Amber M., former Central City Concern Family Housing tenant, mother of four, self-sufficient professional
