Homeless Persons' Memorial Day is held nationally each Dec. 21 to honor homeless people who died during the year and who may not have had anyone to offer a ceremony in their memory.

As the Community Action Partnership of Oregon (CAPO), we support a network of organizations across the state that fight for struggling Oregonians and the conditions they face every day.

Poverty is real in Oregon and we can eliminate it.
The Community Action Partnership of Oregon (CAPO) is working with the Oregon State University Rural Studies Program to develop key indicators. The primary goals of these CAPO indicators are:
  • To demonstrate the impact of Community Action Agencies on stabilizing and equipping low-income Oregonians to exit poverty.
  • To provide local agencies with the data necessary to adapt, improve or better target programs to reach these intended outcomes.
