CCA offers a variety of services including case management, housing and energy assistance, temporary rental assistance, respite referral and assistance, and prescription assistance for low income residents of Clatsop County. We also provide phone, facsimile, and mail message services for our homeless clients. We operate the Oregon Food Bank’s Regional (county) Food Bank, 22 units of low income houses (duplexes), and a Personal Care Pantry for basic necessities other than food (items which food stamps cannot be used to buy such as personal hygiene products, diapers, and cleaning products).
Clatsop County has continued to experience a large increase in demand for all social services, particularly for housing and emergency food requests. Approximately 30 families, (including 30 children) are helped with shelter in our county on any given night. Sadly, about 70 people (including 20 children) remain unsheltered.
Housing assistance requests have continued at never-before-seen levels (over 600% from two years ago). Unfortunately, our food distribution also increased by about 50% over the past four years. We distributed over a million pounds of product through our Regional Food Bank last year. Our Personal Care Pantry served over 600 people. More than 25% of the residents of Clatsop County qualify for emergency food assistance. The most unsettling statistics regarding the high number of people qualified for food assistance are that 41% of these people are children and 20% are seniors (on limited, fixed incomes).
