Oregon Community Foundation Awards Nearly $7 Million to Rockwood CDC to Bring Critical Help to One of the Poorest Areas of Multnomah County

Gresham, Ore. – May 28, 2021Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) today announced that Rockwood Community Development Corporation (Rockwood CDC) will receive a Project Turnkey grant of nearly $7 million for the acquisition and conversion of a 75-room motel in Gresham, Oregon. The property will serve as a COVID-respite shelter for vulnerable community members needing safe housing. Rockwood CDC provides culturally relevant programs, services and referrals to meet specific needs of underserved and multicultural communities of outer East Multnomah County.

“While the pandemic affected everyone, none felt its blow as hard as our vulnerable neighbors did. The Project Turnkey-Gresham will help East Multnomah County rise to the incredible challenge we’re currently facing,” said Brad Ketch, Chairman, Board of Director, Rockwood CDC. “Rockwood CDC looks forward lifting up community members in need, not only with shelter, but with culturally competent services so that they can truly move forward to live good, productive and meaningful lives.”

Key benefits of Project Turnkey-Gresham, operated by Rockwood CDC, include:

  • Safe accommodation for up to 75 individuals or families.
  • Provision of meals, clothing, and essentials such as showers, laundry, hygiene items, etc.
  • An inclusive, community-based, trauma-informed and culturally relevant model that helps unhoused and at-risk community members move from crisis to stability.

“Trusted partners like Wallace Medical are on the front lines serving one of the most under-resourced and disproportionately impacted areas in Oregon,” said Lynn Ketch, Board President for Wallace Medical and Executive Director, Rockwood CDC. “This Project Turnkey grant will provide a much-needed lifeline for underprivileged children and families and other vulnerable community members.”

Today, in the Reynolds School District, we serve nearly 1000 children who are experiencing homelessness. “Providing stable housing and related trauma-informed services as a base is critical for our ability as a school district to be able to support those students through their growth in learning,” said Superintendent Dr. Danna Diaz, Reynolds School District. “Data shows that housing insecurity among children has been associated with mental health issues, substance abuse, and increased behavior problems, all of which hamper a child’s ability to be successful in school.”

The Project Turnkey-Gresham property is located in outer Northeast Portland, Oregon in the 97230 zip code, and will begin use as an active shelter for people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness this summer, with plans to open the remaining rooms to the most vulnerable community members through the pandemic. Longer term, Rockwood CDC will renovate the property to provide transitional housing.

Oregon Community Foundation offers support for Oregon’s housing needs along a continuum -- from shelter to supportive housing to affordable housing to equitable home ownership -- through a variety of tools, including research, grants, advocacy, and low-interest loans.

“The Project Turnkey Advisory Committee enthusiastically supported funding for Rockwood CDC because of their expertise and track record in providing culturally relevant programming to serve under-resourced, multicultural populations throughout outer East Multnomah County,” said Megan Loeb, Program Officer for OCF. “The broad coalition of nearly 30 community partners connected to Rockwood CDC and Project Turnkey-Gresham in truly impressive.”

OCF’s administration of Project Turnkey is one example of the innovative, collaborative approaches underway to help more Oregonians find stable, affordable housing. For a complete list of Project Turnkey grant awardees, please visit Project Turnkey online.

Aviva Health's Capital Campaign Off to Fast Start with $100,000 Contribution from Oregon Community Foundation - 05/24/21

ROSEBURG, Ore. – Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) announced a $100,000 grant supporting Aviva Health’s latest building project, a two-story, 31,000-sq.-ft. clinic on its main Roseburg campus that will add 34 new exam rooms and house the organization’s Roseburg Family Medicine Residency Program.

The award comes on the heels of the Douglas County based Federally Qualified Health Center’s groundbreaking, held virtually last week.

“Aviva’s Family Medicine Residency program addresses one of the root causes of insufficient rural health care—the lack of primary care physicians. Oregon Community Foundation is proud to invest in the clinic expansion necessary to bring the residency program to its full complement of 24 doctors,” said OCF Senior Program Officer John Moriarty. “We believe this will help create a sustainable professional health care workforce for Aviva Health as well as health care organizations throughout Douglas County and beyond.”

Construction will be completed in May 2022, one month before Aviva Health welcomes its third cohort of eight family medicine doctors to its residency, bringing the total number of residents training in the program to 24.

A federally recognized health care provider shortage area, Douglas County has struggled to recruit and retain qualified physicians. Research indicates 50 percent of all family medicine residents practice within 100 miles of where they completed their training, a data point that was a major driver in Aviva Health’s decision to start its residency program.

“Aviva Health is extremely humbled by OCF’s generous investment in our new building project,” says KC Bolton, CEO of Aviva Health. “Receiving this level of support from such a well-respected, Oregon-based foundation is a testament to the importance of our project and yet another example of OCF’s unwavering commitment to our local community.

This isn’t the first time OCF has stepped up to support to Aviva Health. The foundation also contributed $50,000 to the capital campaign supporting the construction of Aviva Health’s existing Roseburg facility. Most recently, OCF awarded Aviva Health $40,000 for its COVID-19 response efforts, which included operating the very first mass COVID-19 vaccination event at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

In addition to providing ample space for the residency program, the building will also greatly improve access to health care services for people living in the area. Parts of Douglas County consistently rank near the top of Oregon Health Authority’s list of areas of highest unmet health care need. Aviva Health estimates it will have the capacity to serve an additional 3,300 unduplicated patients totaling 10,000 patient visits once the facility opens.

ABOUT AVIVA HEALTH

Founded in 1991, Aviva Health is an independent, board-governed, not-for-profit organization that cares for the people of Douglas County by providing high-quality, patient-centered, accessible and affordable medical, dental and behavioral healthcare, regardless of their ability to pay. Aviva Health offers integrated services from nine clinic sites in Roseburg, Myrtle Creek, Sutherlin, Glide and North Douglas County (Drain), including a Teen Health Center located on the campus of Roseburg High School. In partnership with CHI Mercy Medical Center, Aviva Health also serves as the practice site for the Roseburg Family Medicine Residency Program. To learn more, please visit: aviva.health.

Oregon Community Foundation Awards $1.35 Million to House and Care for Coos County Veterans and COVID-Affected Individuals

Operation Rebuild Hope and Coos Health and Wellness to Provide Critical Services

North Bend, Ore. – May 20, 2021Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) today announced Operation Rebuild Hope (ORH) and Coos Health and Wellness (CHW) have been selected to receive a Project Turnkey grant of $1.35 million for the acquisition and conversion of a 17-room motel in North Bend, Oregon. Through the pandemic the property will serve as a COVID-19 respite shelter for Coos County community members in need of non-congregate shelter as well as emergency housing for area veterans.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to increase housing for our residents. Coos County needs all types of housing, including flexible opportunities to house people for short term stays,” said Melissa Cribbins, Coos County Commissioner. “This funding will be used to purchase and upgrade a local motel to provide housing for veterans and others in need of short-term housing. We appreciate the work that Operation Rebuild Hope, Coos Health and Wellness, the City of North Bend, Oregon Community Foundation, Association of Oregon Counties and the Oregon Legislature did to make this happen.”

Located along Highway 101 in North Bend, Oregon, the property is conveniently located close to amenities and services. ORH and CHW anticipate use beginning immediately, with eight rooms already open to the most vulnerable community members during the pandemic.

“This is a much-needed opportunity for our community,” said Jessica Engelke, Mayor of North Bend. “The housing crisis has affected our community members. The partnership between Coos Health and Wellness and Operation Rebuild Hope is a wonderful chance to provide short term housing here.”

Post-pandemic, ORH and CHW will prioritize Coos County veterans experiencing housing instability and mental health challenges as well as other vulnerable community members. Local community partners and CHW will provide relevant, supportive services for area veterans. Coos County has the third highest per county, by percent of population, of veterans in Oregon.*

“As a Veteran who has been homeless and struggled with addiction, I know the struggles in trying to get help,” Patrick Wright, Executive Director of Operation Rebuild Hope, said. “I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to provide these essential services for our veterans and community. These funds will provide housing and essential services for our clients experiencing homelessness. We will address mental health, addiction, physical health, job placement, and a variety of other services so that our clients can become self-sufficient.”

Key benefits of Project-Turnkey-North Bend, operated by Operation Rebuild Hope, include:

  • Safe accommodation and support for COVID-affected individuals and veterans.
  • Helping vulnerable Coos County veterans move from crisis to stability.
  • Supportive, relevant services for area veterans.

Oregon Community Foundation offers support for Oregons housing needs along a continuum—from shelter to supportive housing to affordable housing to equitable home ownership—through a variety of tools, including research, grants, advocacy, and low-interest loans. OCFs administration of Project Turnkey is one example of the innovative, collaborative approaches underway to help more Oregonians find stable, affordable housing.

“It’s wonderful to see Project Turnkey funds supporting shelter and housing for Oregon veterans, a population that disproportionately experiences homelessness and housing insecurity,” said Megan Loeb, Program Officer for OCF. “This grant demonstrates the continued effort of the Advisory Committee to center equity and the people facing housing insecurity throughout the process.”

Oregon Community Foundation Deploys Nearly $1 Million for Summer Youth Programs, First Round of Grantees -- State-Funded Program Addresses Learning Inequities Throughout Oregon (Photo) - 05/17/21

Oregon Community Foundation Deploys Nearly $1 Million for Summer Youth Programs, First Round of Grantees

State-funded program addresses learning inequities throughout Oregon

Portland, Ore. – Monday, May 17, 2021 – Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) announced today that it has approved a first round of grants totaling nearly $1 million for summer academic and enrichment programs throughout Oregon. These initial summer learning grants will support small and large organizations throughout Oregon, many from rural communities.

“OCF has long supported after school and summer programs as we know that attending high quality, community-based programming can have a positive impact on school engagement and attendance,” said Belle Cantor, Senior Program Officer for Education, OCF. “Close to 40% of Oregon students attend schools in rural communities and, due to geographic isolation and resource constraints, many have little access to summer programming. We are excited to be able to support so many programs from the coast to the desert in this first round of funding.”

In late April, OCF announced the foundation’s role in administering $40 million in state-funded grants for community organizations to provide summer enrichment activities. The OCF grant program was underway within hours of state approval.

“OCF’s process to apply for summer funding is clear, equitable and specific to each organization’s unique needs to serve Oregon’s children this summer,” said Toby J. Winn, Executive Director, Neighbors for Kids. “Keeping kids in our communities safe, healthy, learning and growing to reach their full potential is critical as we navigate through the pandemic together.”

Following is a snapshot of just a few of the frontline community-based organizations that OCF is supporting in the first round of state-funded summer program funding:

Crook County Kids $40,000 Summer Learning Grant

Crook County Kids will provide summer programming for Crook County elementary-aged youth to participate in supervised, engaging and interactive activities that promote learning and confidence.

Neighbors for Kids $80,000 Summer Learning Grant

Neighbors for Kids will support families in Lincoln County with summer programs that include healthy food, educational enrichment activities, and field trips.

NE STEAM Coalition $100,000 Summer Learning Grant

NE STEAM Coalition will ensure that high school-aged youth in the Portland Metro area, particularly African American children, have equitable access to science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) education, activities, and exposure to careers in technology.

The K-12 Summer Learning Grants program supports community-based programs that serve youth and families that have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and related crises. 

There are more than 100 submitted applications currently under review. Organizations are encouraged to apply throughout the spring and early summer in the rolling application process. OCF is responding quickly, with weekly application reviews and approvals. Find the K-12 Summer Learning Grant application form at: https://oregoncf.org/grants-and-scholarships/grants/k-12-summer-learning-grant-program

OCF is also administering state-funded Early Childhood Summer Support Grants support enrichment programs for learning. These grants will deliver 12 weeks of parent-child summer programming throughout Oregon. To apply for an Early Childhood Summer Support Grant or learn more, please visit:
