Oregon Project Independence (OPI) was created in 1975 to assist individuals over the age of 60 with services to help them stay in their own homes. In 2014 the Oregon Legislature provided funding to expand the OPI program to serve individuals between the ages of 19-59 in certain areas of the state. This is a one-year pilot project which will study the need and cost of providing the OPI program to younger adults on a permanent basis.

The Polk County Resource Center has sponsored the Dallas Apple Tree Project for the past 15 years, as a part of Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency's mission to assist the families of Polk County. This project assists children of low-income families in getting the most from their public education experience by providing school supplies. The families served cannot afford the basic school supplies their children need in order to perform well in school. Without proper school supplies, the academic achievement of these children will suffer.
