It has been a busy year at Occupy Medical, with a lot of changes and some new opportunities. Here are just a few of the things that have happened in 2020 and the first half of 2021:
We entered into a partnership with OHA to support Black Thistle Street Aid and their mission.
We entered into a contract with Lane County to operate the River Avenue Alternative Care Site for unhoused COVID patients, which closed its doors in June after the contract expired.
For most of 2020 and 2021 we continued to operate the Centennial clinic and saw between 5 and 20 patients per week.
We left the Centennial location forever on July 31. This was a bittersweet decision that has been made in order to ensure the longevity of Occupy Medical as an organization.
A new, small-scale medical clinic has been started at Ebbert United Methodist Church in Springfield (Saturdays 2-5pm).
We appreciate your support in establishing a long-term presence at our new clinic location! Please visit www.occupy-medical.org/donations for a list of commonly needed items or to make an online donation, and to receive updates on how your past donations are being used.
Looking for a way to increase your impact? Many employers match all or part of your charitable donations – contact your HR department for more information.
Thank you so much for your continued support as we provide much needed care to the unhoused population of Eugene and Springfield!
