Message from the Editor:

Connecting happiness with strength by Ben Montgomery / Special Projects Editor Happy people are more likely to give — to write a check, to volunteer their time or to help a stranger — than wealthy people. That’s one of the more pointed conclusions of a recent, first-of-its-kind study by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), an international charity renowned for its research and philanthropic trends. In partnership with Gallup, CAF studied the charitable behavior in 153 countries representing 95 percent of the world’s population. The foundation looked at giving trends, well-being, happiness and wealth. In September of 2010, CAF released their final report, “The World Giving Index 2010,” within which countries and regions are ranked based on overall generosity. Incidentally, the U.S. was ranked fifth in the world (tied with Switzerland) behind Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Canada. Overall, the study concludes that the main way “the world” gives is by helping strangers. Forty-five percent of the world’s population, on average, has given help directly to someone they have never met. (In the U.S., the average is 65 percent.) The study further reports that 30 percent of the world’s

population had given money to charity (60 percent in the U.S.) and 20 percent had volunteered time in the month prior (that’s 39 percent in the U.S.). This is all well and good, but what exactly do these numbers indicate? According to Dr. John Low, chief executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, giving is a clear indicator of strength. “Giving time or money voluntarily to help others is seen by sociologists as a marker of cohesiveness in a society,” Dr. Low wrote in the report’s forward. “The level of giving in a country indicates something about the strength of civil society — the extent to which individuals are willing and able to contribute toward addressing the needs of others both in their own localities and across the borders.” If this is true, then it seems safe to further conclude that Central Oregon packs a mighty punch strength-wise. This region’s charitable community has always been known as one of great outreach and innovation. Yet after facing (and surviving) economic difficulties over the last few years, the more savvy, streamlined version of this community has become even more effective in its mission to improve quality of life in the high desert. In this year’s edition of Connections, we again strive to celebrate Central Oregon’s nonprofit community,

the work they do, and the people who inspire this work through both heart and sweat. This year, we further wish to offer Connections as a more usable publication for those wishing to donate, volunteer or seek assistance. And as always, Connections contains one of Central Oregon’s most thorough listings of active local nonprofits, featuring nearly 400 organizations from Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties. It has often been speculated that charitable giving, regardless of form, is contagious — that one selfless act can directly lead to another. The World Giving Index concludes there’s definite truth to this concept. “Happier people are more likely to give than wealthy people as satisfaction proves a stronger influence than wealth,” it states. “Those who donate are likely to help improve the happiness of others, who in turn may be more likely to give to charity, and so on.” It is our hope that this clearinghouse of nonprofit information serves as a year-round source for Central Oregonians who resolve to increase their levels of giving and volunteering in 2011. If happiness truly is an indicator of goodwill to both neighbors and strangers, it seems that in Central Oregon, we’re already on track toward greater strength and prosperity.

Central Oregon nonprofits remain reflective and creative in adapting to the recession. by Kathy Oxborrow, for The Bulletin Special Projects

When assessing the impact of “The Great Recession” on nonprofit organizations, one thing has remained constant: community needs still outstrip available resources. And unfortunately, the gap between the two has widened significantly. The result, according to regional and statewide philanthropists and experts, is that nonprofit organizations have become more strategic in their fundraising, more efficient at doing more with less, and were forced to make tough decisions about which services to cut. Just like the for-profit sector, to survive today’s economic environment, nonprofit organizations have had to be more nimble in response to revenue losses, streamline operations and get creative about how to generate more income. “I would put nonprofit management up against private management at any time, and this recession was no exception,” said Doug Stamm, CEO of Meyer Memorial Trust, the foundation created by the Fred G. Meyer estate that annually grants millions of dollars to

nonprofits in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. “The creativity, diligence and speed of change in which these wellled nonprofit organizations have reacted and dealt with this recession are nothing short of remarkable.”

A Focus on Basic Needs

One of the trends among granting Gwenn Wysling, executive director, and Chris Clouart, managing director, Bethlehem Inn groups has been to give priority to organizations County. “If you’re pulling people out of the that provide basic needs like food and shelter beriver, you’d like to get upstream and stop them cause these organizations have seen the greatest from going in, but you can’t ignore the people increase in demand for services. who are drowning.” “We’d like to be funding more preventative One organization providing basic needs is services, but our board made the decision to the Bethlehem Inn, the largest emergency shelrank emergency needs first,” said Ken Wilhelm, ter in Central Oregon. Before the recession, a executive director of United Way of Deschutes

“With the revenue decline, the organization has still managed to grow ... because of active volunteers and community support.” — Ben Dittman, BendFilm

Tightening the Belts

With the looming $3.5 billion state budget deficit, organizations that receive government support are really going to feel the pinch. Dave Inbody, assistant to Deschutes County administrator Dave Kanner, said in past years the county received $750,000 in state Video Lottery funds. For the current fiscal year, he expects only around $485,000 to distribute to community organizations. With fewer resources through government funds and otherwise, established organizations and newer groups suffered from the downturn in the economy. Bethlehem Inn’s board, for instance, found it necessary to cut staff to remain open, this despite the fact the homeless population rose once the recession hit. In 2008, the board eliminated the executive director’s position and asked the remaining staff to take on additional duties without increasing pay. Six months ago, implementing its new strategic plan, the board hired executive director Gwenn Wysling.

She just hired a development director, understanding that it’s more important than ever to approach fundraising strategically. Some foundations also cut back in order to continue providing essential services. Leaders at the Meyer Memorial Trust, for instance, decided that the increased need which stemmed from the recession merited cuts in executive salaries and employee benefits. This allowed them to keep grant dollars at pre-recession levels despite a 23 percent loss in the foundation’s 2008 corpus. Art and cultural organizations — groups typically associated with the more affluent within our communities — faced similar challenges. A sharp reduction in financial support forced the Cascade Festival of Music to close its doors in June of 2008 after 26 years of bringing classical music events to Central Oregon. Working Wonders Children’s Museum, which opened in 2004 and faced similar recession-related challenges, folded in October of 2009. In contrast, BendFilm, which presents an annual film festival, is one arts group that has managed to stay afloat despite a drastic drop in revenue. Its 2010 budget was one-quarter the budget they had before the economic downturn. “We’ve had to

make sure that every donor dollar goes further,” said board member Ben Dittman. “With the revenue decline, the organization has still managed to grow the festival and increase attendance because of active volunteers and community support.”

Collaborative Efforts

Carrie Hoops, executive director of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon, said one of the positive effects of the recession she’s seen has been greater collaboration among organizations. “They’re talking to each other more now,” she said. Some organizations with similar missions merged their operations, and some collaborated in fundraising efforts. For instance, reSource, an environmental organization, merged with The Environmental Center in Bend, though executive director Mike Riley said talks between the two organizations began before the recession. “It was motivated in part by thinking about organizations that have similar missions and similar target audiences in a relatively small town,” he said. Riley feels fortunate that the two organizations started the merger when they did because it’s made them better able to weather the economic decline, although they did eliminate some programs. Other organizations, such as the Women’s Resource Center of Central Oregon, Saving Grace, Grandma’s House and the Central Oregon Showcase Chorus, found that merging fundraising efforts could also have

The organizations collaborated to present “Harmony 4 Women” concerts. Sponsors helped with expenses, and the groups split proceeds from ticket sales.

Continued Generosity

Tom Gallagher of The Ford Family Foundation, which supports rural communities with populations under 30,000, said small communities have really delivered during hard times. “The generosity in rural areas just astounds me,” he said, noting that the organizations he works with are mostly volunteer-driven. Stamm of the Meyer Memorial Trust agrees. “Even though people were hurting after the recession, they dug deep to help out the nonprofits, as deep as they could,” he said.

Nonprofit Impact of Oregon’s Quality of Life Based on the sheer numbers representing the scope of nonprofits in Oregon, it should come as no surprise that they significantly impact the quality of life throughout the state. According to the Nonprofit Association of Oregon, “Nonprofits also offer meaningful avenues for civil engagement through volunteerism. Over 33 percent of all Oregonians volunteer, one of the highest rates of volunteerism in the U.S.” Nonprofit organizations also rate favorably in the minds of Oregonians. In a Davis Hibbitts 2005 public opinion poll of more than 1,700 Oregonians: • 70 percent said nonprofits play an important role in making their communities better places to live. • 70 percent said they or a member of their household participated in or was helped by a nonprofit organization in the past two years. • 79 percent said their involvement with nonprofits improved their lives.

Seeking Help? Central Oregon 2-1-1 is your best resource for finding assistance. by Robert Springer, for The Bulletin Special Projects Central Oregonians have one, easy to remember phone number and website to call or visit when they need non-emergency social services: 2-1-1 and www.co211.info. Calling 2-1-1 from Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties will put the caller in touch with a professional trained to provide a referral to an appropriate social service agency. Phone lines are staffed Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., while the website is always available for searching. “There are myriad private and government programs and services that people use,” said Ken Wilhelm, executive director of the United Way of Deschutes County, the lead partner in Central Oregon 2-1-1. “It can be overwhelming to figure out how to get to the right agency, to get what you’re looking for, even what programs exist, especially if you’re new to looking for them. “2-1-1 makes it easy to get to the right place at the right time. Help lines have been around for

awhile; this organizes them into one easy-to-useand-remember phone number.” The service is anonymous, but the 2-1-1 operator will ask for demographic information. If reached after hours, 2-1-1 callers will get a recording listing some non-emergency alternatives (for mental health services, for example) with the option to leave a message. The CO211.info site is almost as easy to use as calling the service. Click on “Get Help,” enter your zip code or select the nearest city from the dropdown menu, and choose a category. The results will be displayed. Quick and simple is what the creators of 2-1-1 had in mind. The most frequent requests are for assistance with housing, utilities, food and health care. 2-1-1 employees work hard to ensure that the referral is appropriate and effective so the caller isn’t sent on the proverbial wild goose chase trying to obtain assistance. Still, Wilhelm said that there is a “fair amount of un-met needs, especially in the areas of housing and health care.”

“2-1-1 operators are trained to help out with problem solving when there is no resource for the caller,” he said. “Let’s say the person has been evicted and we can’t get them rent, we’ll tell them where the shelters are. If they don’t want to go to a shelter, we ask them if they family or a friend to stay with. We always try to help.” Despite the easy-to-remember phone number, Wilhelm said that during the third quarter of this year, the service received more online searches (more than 2,000) than 2-1-1 calls (1,258). The service, a partnership between the United Way and the Central Oregon Family Resource Center, has been in existence since the spring of 2009. Call 2-1-1 or visit www.co211.info for more information.


Giving the Gift of You

While volunteer opportunities abound in Central Oregon, finding a match takes time. by Linda Orcelletto, for The Bulletin Special Projects Research shows that volunteering keeps us happier, healthier and more connected with our communities. Volunteering has proven to be the backbone of our society. The calendar year 2010 was even proclaimed the Year of the Volunteer throughout Central Oregon. “It’s human nature to want to give of ourselves,” said Betsy Warriner, executive director for Volunteer Connect (formerly Volunteer Insights) of Bend. “When you volunteer, you are serving others as well as yourself.”

Making the Match

To make the best match, and make the experience positive for everyone, both the prospective volunteer and organization should be aware of the following: PASSION AND MOTIVATION. Know what drives you. If you love kids, volunteering for an organization working with animals isn’t a good fit. SPECIFIC SKILLS AND EXPERTISE. Only you know the answer. Tell the volunteer coordinator. TIME COMMITMENT. Know how much time you have to give and how much the task requires. SUPERVISION. Determine if you work best alone or with a supervisor. Learn how

to effectively communicate with the supervisor. TRAINING. Specialized work may require training or education. Find out what is required. Know expectations, yet set boundaries. PHYSICAL ABILITY. If a certain capability is required or if there are limitations, be clear.

Giving Your Best

“A positive attitude is important when volunteering,” said Taffy Gleason, executive director for Bend’s Community Center. “Not all volunteer jobs are glamorous, but all are equally important and critical to the organization.” Both Gleason and Warriner agree volunteering needs to be fun and rewarding. Here are suggestions on how to be a good volunteer: TREAT VOLUNTEERING AS A JOB. Be on time, not too early since they may not be ready. If you are unable to volunteer or will be late, call. LISTEN AND LEARN. Be respectful of other viewpoints. Don’t feel as though you can change the world without first being aware of the issues. SHOW INITIATIVE. If you notice something can done more efficiently, offer positive suggestions. Make sure to ask first; there may be particular reason for doing so. IF IT TAKES A WHILE FOR AN ORGANIZATION TO CALL YOU BACK, DON’T GIVE UP. Now might be the time to offer your services as a volunteer coordinator. IF YOU WANT TO BRING OTHERS, GET PERMISSION. There may not be enough to do, which can lead to disappointment. IF YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN, ask if you are able to volunteer from home. “Volunteering is as easy as finding something you want to accomplish, whether it is a one-time event or ongoing,” said Warriner. “Then, find a friend to join you.”

Make the

Volunteer Connection by Robert Springer, for The Bulletin Special Projects

Finding a volunteer or a volunteering opportunity in Central Oregon used to be a daunting prospect. How would the organization in need and the prospective volunteer find each other? That changed this year when Volunteer Connect launched its new, easy-to-use website. Volunteerconnectnow.org aims to make finding a volunteer or a volunteering opportunity simple for those exploring options for giving back to their communities. “We’re a resource for volunteers and community agencies; we help make the connections,” said Betsy Warriner, Volunteer Connect’s executive director. “We help people who are looking for new ideas, people who already volunteer but are looking for new ways to connect with the community, and those new to the area. “We also help students find opportunities.” Finding an opportunity by visiting volunteerconnectnow.org and clicking on “Find a Volunteer Opportunity” search for volunteer opportunities available. A recent visit showed dozens of volunteer opportunities ranging from helping kids with after-school homework to winter native plant beautification in downtown Bend. Once they’ve found the right opportunity, would-be volunteers can contact the organization directly. Volunteers can connect to opportunities on the site with or without registering with Volunteer Connect. The organization encourages registration (it takes less than five minutes) as it allows a volunteer to keep track of his or her preferences, create saved searches and receive occasional volunteering updates. Volunteer Connect is not just for volunteers, Warriner said. After registering online or calling Volunteer Connect, organizations interested in finding volunteers can begin asking for help once they are approved and have paid the nominal annual fee. Warriner said that Volunteer Connect has achieved its mission. “We have facilitated more than 900 connections between volunteers and community agency opportunities online,” she said. “Through service projects and personal referrals, we have facilitated more than 400 additional connections. Central Oregon has needed a service like ours for several years.” Volunteer Connect is funded by individual donations, grants, business sponsorships and the small fees they charge agencies. Visit volunteerconnectnow.org, call 541 385-8977, or stop by their office at the O’Kane Building in downtown Bend (115 NW Oregon Street, Ste. 26) to learn more. The Bulletin | 9

Staying True to Its Name Donors and volunteers help Friends with Flowers bring joy to terminally ill patients. by Susan Thomas Springer, for The Bulletin Special Projects You never know when an article you read will change your life. For Bend resident Heidi Berkman, an article about Friends with Flowers, a national nonprofit organization, inspired her to start a branch of the organization here in Central Oregon. Area patients nearing the end of their lives have benefitted ever since. Friends with Flowers was founded in North Carolina to repurposing flowers from weddings and other events to bring joy to terminally ill patients. When Berkman read about the organization, the concept stuck with her. As a meeting and event planner, Berkman knew that flowers were often wasted after events. Also, she had a passion for flowers and was familiar with the wonderful support system of Hospice. So three years ago, Berkman spread the word. She opened her garage to floral arranging, and the deliveries began. Today, Friends With Flowers has grown

into a nonprofit organization with its own space for flower arranging, a strong group of volunteers who arrange and deliver flowers, and a list of dedicated flower donors. Friends with Flowers delivers bouquets to Partners in Care, which includes Hospice House and to other locations including Prineville’s Pioneer Memorial Hospital. Then caregivers take the flowers to patients during their visits. “It allows for such a cheerful entrance when they come into a home,” said Berkman. “Often the senses that are remaining near the time of death are sight and smell.” Partners in Care CEO Eric Alexander appreciates Friends for bringing color and joy into households and patient rooms. “It really has double impacts,” he said. “As Friends with Flowers delivers them to our building, we hold them for our caregivers who pick them up for their visits to patients in their homes, so our lobby and public areas are brightened by the color and the smell of fresh flowers. And of course, as our staff enters patient’s homes, it is a bright and cheery gift they can bring the families.” The Bulletin | 13


Some local Hospice nurses have written notes in appreciation for the service. “Thank you for offering this service to people who are ill,” said one nurse. “It gives a glimmer of hope, a remembrance of things beautiful for them.” “I have had many patients with tears in their eyes when I bring them arrangements and tell them about your service,” wrote another. “Totally brightens their day.” Support for Friends With Flowers has come from throughout the community. Several florists and grocery stores donate flowers, such as Trader Joe’s, Newport Avenue Market and C. E. Lovejoy’s Market. Friends With Flowers has networked with hotels and wedding coordinators for additional donations after events. Floral donations are rearranged into fresh bouquets. About a year ago, Cascade Village Shopping Center donated

space to Friends With Flowers, offering them free rent and utilities. That space, along with a utility sink and dishwasher to clean vases, has been a real boost to Friends With Flowers’ mission. Berkman said that she gets calls people outside Central Oregon who ask how to start a Friends with Flowers organization in their community. She’s happy to help expand the concept nationwide. “I was fortunate enough in my life to have someone show me the importance of volunteerism and giving to your community,” said Berkman. Through the help of donors and volunteers, Berkman said Friends With Flowers has created and distributed 400 bouquets for Central Oregonian patients in the first 11 months of this year. Even though that’s an impressive number, Berkman would like her outreach to increase. One board member, a supporter of Friends With Flowers since

its inception, is equally committed to growing the organization. “It’s something that brings a little bit of light into what is often a difficult time,” said board member Kelly Herman. Herman adds that donating time toward something which has such depth of meaning is

worthwhile. For many recipients, a Friends With Flower bouquet represents the first — and perhaps, sadly, the last — time they have received flowers. “We’re providing that random act of kindness,” Berkman said.

Protecting Our Pets

Thanks to the Pet Evacuation Team, pet safety is a critical part of local emergency response. by Lori Gleichman, for The Bulletin Special Projects It is Jamie Scanlon-Kanski’s mission to encourage people to put as much planning and preparedness into their pets’ emergency evacuation plan as they put into making sure their family escapes disaster safely. But just in case, she and her team of 114 volunteers are on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to make sure as many domestic animals as possible survive the unexpected. Scanlon-Kanski is the director of regional coordination for the Pet Evacuation Team (PET), a local nonprofit organization that works closely with the local chapter of the American Red Cross and regional emergency services coordinators to ensure the safety and welfare of domestic animals during a natural disaster or as a result of abuse and neglect. They can also use their expertise with animals to help people locate lost pets after a house fire or other catastrophe. But evacuation is just the first step, explained Scanlon-Kanski. After that, animals have to be taken care of, which includes 18 | Connections 2011

shelter, food and water, veterinary care, and sometimes arranging foster care for longerterm situations. “Finally, we get to re-unite lost or sheltered animals with families after the threat is gone,” she said. “This is the best part.” Last summer, PET used the rodeo grounds in Sisters to shelter animals during wildfires that caused entire neighborhoods to be evacuated. This was a safe place for residents to leave their dogs, cats and other pets if they had to stay at the Red Cross shelter or with friends who couldn’t accommodate animals, according to Scanlon-Kanski. For the Sisters and Black Butte communities, domestic animals also included horses, llamas and cattle. “We try to accommodate any animals they bring to us,” she said. Scanlon-Kanski is grateful that evacuating animals is now an accepted and expected part of disaster planning. “We had been operating out of the Redmond Humane Society since 2001, but it was after Hurricane Katrina (in 2005) that disaster planning for animals in large-scale events


became mandatory,” she said. It was also then that PET became affiliated with the American Red Cross so it can be more integrated with regional disaster planning and more efficiently respond to events when they happen. Scanlon-Kanski calls the partnership with the Red Cross “unique and wonderful,” serving as a model for other animal evacuation teams around the country. Perhaps its because Central Oregon gets to “practice” so often because of the routine threat of wildfire that PET is so respected, Scanlon-Kanski speculated, but she also credits the in-depth training the volunteers complete. Of course volunteers must love and respect animals, she explained. “But if they want to work on evacuations, they also have to be available and flexible enough to respond at a moment’s notice,” she said. It’s also helpful if they are experienced with animals, have a relaxed and calm demeanor in an emergency, and are willing to get dirty. Finally, they must complete three phases of training, which includes a basic orientation, animal first-aid with a veterinarian, and then field exercise. PET also boasts volunteers who have com-

pleted more sophisticated training like water and rope rescue. Of course, PET never says no to someone who wants to help, according to Scanlon-Kanski. “Even if someone can’t commit to evacuations, we can always use help with office work, finding foster homes and rounding up supplies, and with fundraising,” she said. Currently, PET, which just received its

501(c)(3) nonprofit designation, is raising money to purchase small trailers filled with supplies to be positioned within each community in the region. “I can’t imagine anything worse than losing everything in a wildfire, unless it’s losing a beloved pet too,” said Scanlon-Kanski. “We need more people to know that help with pets is available.”

Mending psyche and spirit Central Oregon Police Chaplains offer grief services, stress management and disaster response. by Linda Orcelletto, for The Bulletin Special Projects

The cell phone rings at 4:20 a.m. He grabs a cup of coffee, kisses his loving wife goodbye, grabs his car keys, Bible and note pad, then drives into the starry Central Oregon morning. He’s not a pastor or priest getting a head start on Sunday morning’s sermon; he is Chaplain Jim Crowley with the Central Oregon Police Chaplaincy (COPC). He’s just been notified by 911 dispatch there’s been a deadly car accident involving four teenagers on Alfalfa Road. Crowley isn’t alone at the horrific scene that morning; he’s met by many first responders that could include emergency medical technicians (EMTs), Oregon State Troopers, and multiple fire fighters and law enforcement personnel. His job and mission is to serve the hearts and minds of Central Oregon’s first responders. “It is such a privilege and honor to serve the men and women who do so much for

the community,” said Chaplain Crowley, executive chaplain for COPC and also an ordained pastor with Church of the Nazarene. “We are here to serve by keeping them healthy.” COPC, established in 1997, trains chaplains in grief and bereavement services, stress management, and disaster response. According to Crowley, it is essential to offer stress management resources and grief counseling services to those on the front lines. Witnessing such trauma on a regular basis can lead to personal, emotional and mental issues if not handled properly. First responders handle an inordinate level of stress compared with other jobs, Crowley points out. Often on a daily basis, they may respond to suicide, deadly accidents involving toddlers or young people, critical car accidents, house fires and other highstress incidents. As a result, Crowley says, between 250 and 400 first responders nationwide die by their own hand each year, often because they don’t have resources such as COPC to assist them in coping with the stress.

has been with COPC as a volunteer chaplain for the past five years. She’s a former EMS and says the chaplaincy is her way to stay involved and give back to the first responders and the community. “I’ve come to realize I’m just one aspect of what is happening at the moment,” says Wright. “Whether it is offering counseling, making phone calls, answering questions or sitting with someone, I am blessed to be able to offer my services.” Chaplain Crowley works 70 to 80 hours per week for the COPC and is one of two fulltime staff members with the organization. He is also responsible for the well-being of the 13 volunteer chaplains who are on call on a rotating basis every hour of every day. Yet, COPC doesn’t receive public funding. They rely on donations from those who receive their services or through fundraisers. Also humbling is the fact that more than 30 to 35 percent of their donations come in the form of payroll deductions from the very people they serve. “We do this line of work because we have a passion to help others,” says Crowley. “Like other professions, our heart has called us. We answer the best way we know how.”

Affordable, nonprofit care Mosaic Medical exists to expand primary care options for people of all income levels. by Andrew Moore, for The Bulletin Special Projects The recession has taken its toll in Central Oregon, and while losing a job can frighten a family, and losing a house can dash a dream, perhaps nothing is scarier for many local families than losing their health insurance and access to medical care. “It’s been tough here,” said Megan Haase, the CEO of Prineville-based Mosaic Medical, a nonprofit community health center with clinics in Bend, Madras and Prineville. “People who have never struggled with not having insurance or now having that struggle.” While hospitals are required to provide care in an emergency, Haase said such visits can be expensive, and in cases with chronic diseases, can often be avoided with preventative care. But with unemployment in Central Oregon stubbornly high, and because many families receive 26 | Connections 2011

health insurance benefits through work, the ranks of the uninsured have swelled during the recession, said Haase. For many families, that means cutting preventative or primary care in order to make ends meet. Mosaic Medical aims to fill that hole. It has nearly two dozen doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants on staff to provide a full range of services to the uninsured at its three clinics. In addition, Mosaic Medical offers its servic-

es to the uninsured on a sliding scale, based on income. As a result, needy families can often receive care with very little out-of-pocket expense. “Our goal is to expand primary care, make patients healthier and decrease complications if they have chronic diseases,” said Haase. “If you can provide more primary care for patients, for people who would have ended up in the emergency room, they could be taken care of at a primary care center for less.” It may sound too good to be true, but Mosaic Medical is able to provide its services to the uninsured thanks to federal grant money, as well as other private grants and donations. Mosaic Medical also sees Medicare and Medicaid patients, as well as patients with health insurance. In October, the latest month data is available, 41.1 percent of Mosaic Medical’s monthly billings were for Medicaid, according to Haase. Second was for uninsured patients, at 35.8 percent, which


is mostly covered with grants from the federal Health Resources and Service Administration. Medicare billing made up 12.6 percent of the nonprofit’s October revenue, followed by 10.6 percent from private insurance. Haase said a number of patients with insurance choose Mosaic Medical for their needs because they support the nonprofit’s mission or have followed a primary care provider to the clinic. However, for adults needing primary care, getting an appointment at the clinic can mean a wait in Bend of three to four months. There is no wait for pediatric appointments in Bend, and there is no wait for adult and pediatric appointments at the Prineville and Madras clinics. Haase said the clinic in Bend has already expanded once, and in the process, whittled a backlog of roughly 400 appointments down to zero. But with the recession, the backlog has returned. In addition to providing primary care services, Mosaic Medical also helps its patients in social aspects that might not seem germane to medical care but go a long way toward ensur-

ing a patient participates in managing his or her health, Haase said. For instance, Haase said Mosaic Medical can help secure mental health services or find transportation in order for patients to get to their appointments. But the program with perhaps the biggest impact is a medication assistance program that, for some patients, can mean a three-month drug supply for as little as $3. “It’s really significant,” said Haase. “I can’t imagine providing care without that resource. It means patients can continue receiving their medication without a lapse.” As Haase explained, a number of pharmaceutical companies participate in a federal program to make their products available at a discount to individuals with financial needs. Mosaic Medical was founded in Prineville in 2002 as the Ochoco Community Clinic, the first federally-sanctioned community health center in Central Oregon. In 2005, it opened the Community Clinic of Bend, and a year later, it opened the Mount Jefferson Community Clinic in Madras. In 2008, the organization changed its name

and those of its clinics to Mosaic Medical. It currently employs approximately 100 people. Haase has been with the organization since its founding. She was originally hired as a family nurse practitioner before becoming the medical director. Earlier this year, Haase was named interim CEO and was then given the position on a permanent basis in September. She said Mosaic is not meant to supplant traditional health care providers, but to provide a safety net to the most vulnerable. In doing so, Haase said Mosaic and the other 29 community health centers around the state can bring down the cost of health care by preventing expensive emergency room visits. “As a community, we want to be wise about where we are providing resources so we can pull out of high cost areas, like emergency room visits, and reinvest them in other places that are more cost-effective and move us forward as a community,” said Haase. “It’s exciting to be able to provide access to health care for many that didn’t have it before.”
