Portland Community Health Center is planning to expand their substance abuse services to meet the growing demand in their service are due to increases in opiate use, declining services available in the community, and growing uninsured adult population.

We also supported them in applying for new funding through describing the need in the community and developing a workplan for implementation of the new model.
