What We Do

HSCCC brings people together to tackle issues that have a major impact on all members of our community, emphasizing prevention of homelessness. Our work is informed by the community and those who have lived experience of homelessness to create tailored solutions that meet the needs of our area. Our strength is our ability to make connections and build relationships. We understand there is no one size fits all model, which is why partnerships are key.

Over the years we’ve collaborated with our partners to identify significant major challenges. Often work groups are created to address these challenges. Examples include forming warming shelters,disseminating “Street Roots” resource books, creating a Community Court service mall, transitional housing, youth homelessness, and others.

Services to support people to get re-housed can be scattered geographically and logistically uncoordinated due in part to issues related to funding and staffing. This can cause slow-downs and less than ideal levels of efficiency in getting people rehoused and offering them other resources needed to sustain healthy lives. As a solution, HSCCC connects service providers to one another, and to other needed resources, so they can more efficiently and conveniently offer critical services to unhoused individuals and families. 

These services are ideally tailored to meet the needs of each individual or family experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity.  These wrap-around services typically include behavioral and physical health, transportation, employment, legal and other related resources to support individuals and families in exiting homelessness. 

Service Provider Network

The Homeless Service Provider Network is an opportunity for anyone involved in assisting our unhoused neighbors to network, learn together, support each other, and identify gaps. Together, we can help each other find resources and gain some of our own. Each meeting highlights a specific resource as well as providing HSCCC updates. This group meets monthly.

Community Education

“The Longest Night Homeless Persons’ Candlelight Vigil in Oregon City”

In April 2023 HSCCC held five Community Conversations–public meetings to discuss a shared vision for solving homelessness through local partnerships. Specifically, HSCCC sought input on its approach to preventing and ending homelessness as an organization, and on its proposed capital project: a Center in the Two Rivers neighborhood of Oregon City.

The goal of these meetings were multi-pronged. At these meetings, HSCCC leadership and its partners sought to share information about HSCCC as an organization, to share information about the proposed Center to support preventing and ending homelessness, to hear the community’s thoughts, concerns, and input, and to record input to shape HSCCC’s path moving forward.
