Since 1979, Central City Concern (CCC) has brought together health care, housing, and jobs to end homelessness in Portland. Serving approximately 14,000 people each year, our comprehensive continuum of services includes affordable and supportive housing, integrated health services, and employment assistance. By providing a stable foundation of support, CCC helps people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness overcome life’s biggest challenges and achieve their highest potential.
We have combined our signature services and best thinking at Blackburn Center (12121 E Burnside), a new CCC facility that offers health care, housing, and employment – all under the same roof. Now open in East Portland, Blackburn Center’s health care clinic, pharmacy, supportive housing program, and on-site employment services feature a person-centered and trauma-informed approach that meets people where they are with quality, evidence-based care that is judgement free.
Blackburn Center is the culmination of 40 years of CCC’s learning and compassion. We have learned from our clients that when we give people choices in their addiction recovery, they have a better chance of long-term success. In response, Blackburn Center offers an array of substance use disorder treatment options, including counseling, groups, peer support, medication support, and wellness classes. Clients can choose the recovery path that works best for them and their families.
Through comprehensive case management, safe and supportive housing, and employment services, Blackburn Center provides support to stabilize and rebuild the lives of people who need help the most. Learn more about Blackburn Center at centralcityconcern.org/blackburn.
