Thrive Central Oregon connects to
a wide variety of resources
Our services are client-led, meaning individual and families' priorities are our priorities. We have no agenda and support Central Oregonians' personal agency and self-knowledge. There is no question too big or too small. See below for descriptions of some of the services we provide and resources we connect folks to.  


We help individuals and families find, apply for, and navigate the housing options and financial supports that they qualify for. This looks different for everyone, so it is best to come in and see us at a drop-in site if you are looking for housing or have questions and needs about where you currently live.

We assist individuals that have questions about Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). We can provide information about applying, and help throughout the application process.

Social Security Process



We connect individuals and families to the health insurance and health care that they are looking for. From OHP application help to finding the right doctor or mental health professional, we seek to connect community members to appropriate and respectful health services. See us at a drop-in site for more info.
