Central City Concern Pivots Care Due to Wildfires, Smoke

By Laura J. Recko, Associate Director of Communications & Donor Relations, Central City Concern

How Central City Concern locations, staff, and operations have been impacted by wildfires: ​Similar to our COVID response, Central City Concern stood up an Incident Command Team which met daily to address operational, employee, client and patient issues. We regularly communicated with staff, adjusted clinic and pharmacy hours, moved as many in person visits to telehealth, adjusted outdoor staffing, passed out masks and worked with the Multnomah County Joint Office of Homeless Services to acquire additional masks, and added employee resources for those needing it. Additionally, we put evacuation plans in place for our properties/programs in Clackamas County but luckily did not have to implement!
