Central City Concern has had a positive impact on many Portland residents. As their website states, “Central City Concern (CCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency serving single adults and families in the Portland metro area who are impacted by homelessness, poverty and addictions. Founded in 1979, the agency has developed a comprehensive continuum of affordable housing options integrated with direct social services including healthcare, recovery and employment.”
One of CCC’s mentored employment programs, with a new focus in Eliot and the surrounding areas, is CCC Clean Start PDX. The new team is up and running and the feedback from Central Eastside has been positive. Residents are seeing the truck and noticing the cleaner streets. Everyone benefits in the launch of this new program.
If residents have specific issues they can email firstname.lastname@example.org with their concern and it should be handled within 24 hours.
