“Helping People. Changing Lives.”



The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers..

Meals on Wheels

A person aged 60 or over and the spouse of the person regardless of age or condition are eligible to receive home-delivered meals if one or the other is homebound by reason of illness, incapacitating disability or is otherwise isolated. Hot, nutritious noon meals are delivered up to five days per week. Frozen meals may be delivered for the weekends.
In some cases, meals may be delivered to individuals under the age of 60 if they receive Medicaid and if home-delivered meals are a part of their care plan.
