Columbia Pacific Coordinated Care Organization is celebrating five years of working as a collaborator with local Oregon Health Plan members, providers, county governments, schools, law enforcement, nonprofits and community partners to make Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook counties healthier places to live, play and work.

The organization works closely with schools and other organizations to expand health across the community.

Columbia Pacific CCO has provided grants for Food Bank Fresh Initiatives and Mobile Produce Pantry in Clatsop County, Food Bank grants in Columbia County to increase the distribution of fresh produce by 70 percent, and a local Homeless Relief Shelter in Tillamook.

Projects include supporting Clatsop Kids Go; training more than 300 school personnel, mental health providers, parents and others in Columbia County in trauma-informed care; and promoting Tillamook County’s Year of Wellness high school challenge.
