Community & Family

LOUCC actively supports organizations and programs that help people live and thrive within their families and communities. We provide ongoing support to the HIV/AIDS Daycare Center at Ainsworth UCC in NE Portland as well as the Southwest Community Health Center, which provides basic, quality health services to low-income residents of SW Portland and the surrounding area. Our children and youth, as well as adults from our congregation, have contributed both money and hands-on volunteer hours to Northwest Children’s Outreach, which provides clothing, toys, and books to children in need.

We also support Camp Adams, a 210-acre, forested recreational retreat center located 35 miles south of Portland, Oregon that is owned and operated by the Central Pacific Conference of the United Church of Christ. A workday at Camp Adams in 2010 uncovered a need for kitchen items for Hope Cabin. Our Christmas “giving tree” that year was used to collect many useful kitchen tools for that cabin.
