CareOregon: More than $5.5 million in grants since 2016

Lack of access to health care and other needed resources often keep people in an unending cycle of poverty, homelessness, hunger and fear. To help break this cycle, CareOregon has provided more than $5.5 million in community grants since 2016.

The recipients of the grants are all tax-exempt organizations with missions that align with CareOregon’s vision of healthy communities for all individuals, regardless of income or social circumstances. Grant funded work seeks to reduce the impacts of homelessness, children's trauma and social determinants of health.
