As a private non-profit umbrella agency, Oregon Coast Community Action provides cost effective joint administration, leadership, and support for children’s programs and emergency services on the southern Oregon Coast. Our network of programs works to feed, house, warm and educate people.
We are Community Action because...
Everyone should have food As the South Coast’s regional food bank for the Oregon Food Bank, our network of local food pantries and meal sites are committed to the belief that no one should be hungry.
Everyone should have a safe, warm, and affordable home We help families find and stay in affordable housing through services such as housing counseling and emergency rental assistance. Households stay warm through energy assistance, energy education, and weatherization programs.
Everyone should have access to resources to thrive ORCCA offers emergency medical and dental assistance as well as assistance for individuals to acquire Social Security benefits and health insurance. In addition to programs that are under the ORCCA umbrella, we also support a number of local non-profits through grants, facilities, and other support.
Every child needs more people who care Through South Coast Head Start and Great Afternoons, ORCCA serves infant to elementary children by providing comprehensive education experience and social services for the entire family. The Court Appointed Special Advocates program provides volunteers to advocate for children in foster care.
Every youth should have opportunities Programs like Toy Tales and Community Action Adventure offer ways for kids to help other kids in the community.
Everyone has something to give ORCCA also gives opportunities for neighbors to help neighbors! Contributions of volunteer time, specific items, and money from community businesses and donors are used to create a brighter future for the most vulnerable families in our region.
By working together, we can all thrive. ORCCA helps build a community where all South Coast families thrive and live with dignity and respect.
A brand new, exciting and fun way to donate to feed hungry children and families, the South Coast Food Share Virtual Food Drive gets you the most bang for every buck by providing seven pounds of food for every dollar.
