Housing Solutions' mission is to empower individuals and families to become self sufficient by living within their means in affordable, permanent housing.

Community Action Team, Inc.  has very limited funding to help clients who request housing financial assistance.  We are constantly seeking funds to provide emergency assistance.  However, given the high demand for this assistance we are often without available funds.  These resources are subject to availability. You must be established in Columbia County for six months or longer.

Please call us at 503-397-3511 or 800-404-3511 if you need assistance completing the intake packet.

Coordinated Entry (CE) is a system that allows for coordinated entry into a local homeless services system, as well as coordinated movement within and ultimately exit from the system. Coordinated Entry increases the efficiency of a homeless assistance system by standardizing access to homeless services and coordinating program referrals.  

The Rural Oregon Continuum of Care (ROCC) is committed to sustaining a CE system that will help to advance our goals of helping households quickly access appropriate services to address housing crises, increasing exits to housing, decreasing length of time homeless, and reducing returns to homelessness.
