​ Neighborhood Health Center (NHC) is the recipient of a $100,000 grant from the Washington County CARES Program Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation to sustain dental care programs serving low-income populations.

NHC is a non-profit community health center that offers medical, dental, family planning/reproductive health and behavioral health services to Medicaid, Medicare and underinsured patients in the Portland metro area.

“We’re so grateful for the Oregon Community Foundation’s continued support for NHC’s programs – especially during this challenging time for so many in our community,” said Jeri Weeks, NHC’s chief executive officer.

“These funds will help NHC sustain personnel to ensure we can continue to provide dental care to our community’s most vulnerable – populations at an increased risk due to COVID-19,” she added.

Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) puts donated money to work in Oregon – more than $100 million in grants and scholarships support Oregonians annually. For nearly 45 years, OCF grantmaking, research, advocacy and community-advised solutions have helped individuals,​ families, businesses and organizations create charitable funds to improve lives for all Oregonians.

With this most recent gift, OCF has provided NHC with $131,000 in grant funds this year.
