Health & Recovery
To many of us, homeless people have problems that seem intractable—debilitating physical, mental and addiction issues that keep them in a cycle of chronic homelessness. The solution is not simple. To achieve lasting recovery, an effective approach addresses the different issues that perpetuate homelessness.
Central City Concern has developed a comprehensive approach that addresses the needs of individuals by providing them with housing, health and recovery assistance in a fully integrated way. CCC is designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center and we operate at multiple sites across the Portland area. We understand that the best results come from addressing all aspects of a person’s life. We bring together safe and supportive housing, health care, mental health, meaningful employment and peer support. A stable life begins with good physical and mental health and freedom from addictions.
In 2018, CCC was named a Health Center Quality Leader by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The designation is given to only the top 30 percent of all HRSA-supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across clinical operations.
Central City Concern helps people reclaim their dignity and make lasting transformations in their lives.
