Community is our middle name.

In Oregon, we know well that the heroes of our communities reside within them. We believe that fully engaged citizens are a building block for healthy communities and a healthy democracy. When communities focus on strengths and recognize their own capacity to mobilize resources and solve problems, they reveal powerful potential for positive change.

Community Building Blocks

The ability to inspire and empower provides a way of life and a new way of doing things. If you can inspire enough people, you can really start moving the dial on bigger issues. People will be their own solutions.
