Our October email newsletter–a 60 second story to touch your heart.
The staff of The Next Door hosted a Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the completion of our solar panel awning.
These solar panels will provide about 15% of the electricity for the building. Funding was made possible by Sorensen Construction, Tofurky, Pacific Power’s Blue Sky, Energy Trust of Oregon, and Common Energy
Our awning is in a very visible location, where 18,000 vehicles a day pass by. We hope it will inspire people to install solar panels for their homes and businesses.
In our latest email newsletter, “Jake” tells his own story of neglect, trauma, and hope.

On August 27, our Community Health Worker (CHW) regional training center graduated 25 Certified CHWs, a first for the Gorge and a real step forward for the field. Here’s to the class and a special congrats to long time Health Promoter Maria Antonia (Toña) Sanchez.
We are excited to be part of bringing Community Health Worker Training to the Gorge. “We Are Health” is a 90 hour certification training for Community Health Workers (CHWs). Participants who complete the rigorous training requirements are eligible for certification as a CHW in the state of Oregon. This training usually costs $2,000 but we secured funding to offer it for free.
