Community Action of Washington County has been fighting poverty in Oregon for over fifty years. The organization runs many vital social programs in our county, including Head Start, housing and homelessness services, energy assistance, help for migrant farmworkers and more. In 2016, Community Action donated its historic records to the Pacific University Archives. These records have nearly all been digitized and are accessible through this site.
