 The mission of Project Access NOW is to improve the health of our community by creating access to care and
 services for those most in need..
Project Access NOW’s C3 Community Assistance Program

Upon being discharged from a hospital stay or emergency room visit, low-income people may face additional barriers to returning home, barriers that are only compounded when those people are experiencing homelessness. That’s why Project Access NOW is developing a coordinated system to help discharge planners, social workers, and care managers connect patients to the resources they need to safely leave the hospital, including transportation, temporary housing, and medication assistance.

We’re proud to work with Providence Health & Services as our development partner on this project which we expect to make available to other hospital systems in early 2015.



There are still more than 50,000 uninsured individuals in the Portland metropolitan area.

Your contribution will help the low-income uninsured get the care they need. Today.

Thank you for your support!
