Your insights can shape how Central Oregon's largest provider of social services helps the region take care of its most vulnerable citizens. No prior experience necessary. Your voice is all that is needed. Please volunteer today. A board membership application may be filled out and submitted online or contact Nancy Gibson, 541-323-6537 or by email.
