The Report — May 2024

I hope this Report finds you enjoying the lovely spring weather. As the days grow warmer and the flowers bloom, it’s a perfect time to reconnect and share some exciting, impactful highlights from our initiatives over the past month — achievements that wouldn't be possible without your generous support.


East County Housing Funding Update:

We're delighted to announce that East County Housing has secured funding through Housing Multnomah Now, marking a crucial milestone in expanding their reach and impact. With this funding, the ECH team is now empowered to engage with and conduct outreach to at least 50 unsheltered individuals in our community. This outreach includes providing essential resources such as tents, blankets, food, and first aid kits, ensuring that those in need receive vital support and assistance.


ECH's Housing Support Brings Hope to 120 Families 

East County Housing has achieved another remarkable milestone: a 90% success rate in transitioning families from The Tower to permanent housing. This means over 120 families find stable housing each year. What a profound impact on our community members' lives! We couldn’t be prouder of the team’s dedication to providing housing solutions for vulnerable groups in our community.


Rockwood Health Fair Empowers Over 240 Families  

East County Community Health (ECCH) recently hosted a free, family-friendly health fair event called the "Rockwood Health Fair" at Rockwood Preparatory Academy. The event was a vibrant celebration filled with fun games, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon making, and a cake walk—ensuring there was something for everyone to enjoy. Beyond the festivities, the fair provided an opportunity for 240 families to connect with vital health resources and services. With 16 community-based organizations in attendance, attendees had access to a wide range of support. Health fairs are one of the ways ECCH demonstrates its commitment to positively impacting the community through accessible health initiatives.

Your ongoing support and trust mean the world to us. With your help, lives are being transformed, and the future of our community grows ever brighter.

If you have any questions or need further details about our programs, please reach out. Here's to another month of making a real difference in the communities we serve.

With heartfelt appreciation,

Brad and Lynn Ketch
