Dear HLC Members,

The Homeless Leadership Coalition (HLC) is a collaboration of community partners in Crook, Jefferson, and Deschutes counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs engaging the community through education, advocacy, planning, prioritization and accountability for services to persons experiencing homelessness. 

Central Oregon has long recognized the need for a more coordinated and informed response to homelessness and people living in poverty.  Since the late 1990’s, The Central Oregon Homeless Leadership Coalition has been tackling this challenging and often dynamic problem.

The HLC consists of more than 40 organizations and individuals from Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson Counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.  They include shelter providers, public schools, public health, emergency services, veterans outreach, faith communities, public safety, mental health, housing services, public services, private employers, people with lived experience of homelessness and others.  They represent a diverse group of interests, unified by a common focus.

With election season in the air, we want to encourage HLC members to remain engaged in local civic matters all year long. Here are the links for local city & county meetings:
Crook County meetings
Deschutes County meetings

Madras City Council

With appreciation, 
The Homeless Leadership Coalition

This year, more than ever, the influenza vaccine is recommended for all due to COVID-19. When you are vaccinated against flu, you protect yourself and lower the chances of infecting others, including people at high risk of developing potentially serious flu complications as well as keeping hospital beds available for those with COVID-19. #FightFlu
