We're trying a new, streamlined format for posting community events. Every week, instead of separately posting community events information, we are gathering them on this virtual bulletin board. Our goal is to provide one-stop-shopping for the events you need to know about.
Another Compassion Connect clinic is on the horizon for Portland. Downtown Compassion is focused on offering free health care and other service resources to the uninsured, underinsured and homeless residents of central and downtown Portland. The clinic is the result of local churches, volunteers, social service organizations and community organizations willing to donate their time, resources and professional skills to those in need.
Services that will be offered, while supplies last and appointment times are available, include:
WHAT’S HAPPENING: On May 31, learn the many ways that Clackamas County is creating an age-friendly community at the engAGE in Community Expo. Hear dynamic speakers, learn about community resources, check out information booths, join in community discussions and take advantage of networking opportunities. Here's what to expect:
• Panelists will discuss transportation, housing, advocacy, volunteering and financial and food security.
WHAT'S HAPPENING: Several Washington County-based agencies have put their heads together to come up with a win-win solution for the seniors they serve and the people in the community who might be of service. Senior GAP, Home Instead and Hospice of Washington County are co-hosting a forum to get the word out about a variety of volunteer and paid part-time opportunities to work with their clients.
