Central City Concern is keenly interested in involving its alumni and friends in advocacy work for matters relating to access and funding of affordable
housing, health care, mental health care, treatment for substance use disorders and employment development. We will occasionally become involved
in specific campaigns around federal and state legislative actions as well as public awareness campaigns. Sign up at the bottom of this page
to receive Action Alerts when we need advocates to act and mobilize.
Our Public Policy Director is Rachel Post. Rachel currently participates in the National Health Care for Homeless Policy Committee, the State DHS Family Services Review Commission, the Oregon Housing and Community Services and Oregon Health Authority's Supportive Housing workgroup and the Oregon TANF Alliance.
