Basic Needs

As the popularity of Central Oregon has grown, so has the cost to live here. Many of our neighbors live in poverty or just on its edge. The nonprofits in the Basic Needs category protect children, families and vulnerable individuals with support for housing, food, utilities and transportation. Give generously to strengthen the net.
