Oregon State University's Extension Family & Community Health (FCH) program serves Oregonians through education, community partnerships, and action. FCH focuses on programs that will promote healthy communities, healthy families, and healthy individuals.
This website is for people who find they need to ask for help--people who may have recently lost a job, a home, or may be having a hard time making ends meet. Locating such basic resources as food, shelter, employment, or health care can mean stumbling through a maze of agencies before making the right connections. People looking for help may not know where to being.
OSU Extension has compiled a list of state resources, community services, and information to help people find the help they need in these tough times. The list is not -- cannot be -- absolutely complete. It is meant to help people get started. We will continue to add links and information as it is developed.
