Multnomah County operates 12 student health centers at area schools, including Lane Middle School, here in Brentwood-Darlington! The clinics are like a regular doctor’s office—offering everything from immunizations and well-child exams to mental health counseling. Student health clinics are open to all Multnomah County youth (aged 5-18) and there is never an out-of-pocket cost for students or their families. Same day and walk-in appointments available. Find out more here!
We will also be hosting a representative from Multnomah County Health Centers at our December 7th meeting with Special Guest Sgt. Randy Teig.
For decades Leach Botanical Garden has been an enchanting refuge in East Portland – and now they are about to take bold steps toward becoming a garden for everyone, both in East Portland and around the region. The centerpiece will be a tree walk – 30 feet off the ground – giving visitors of all ages and abilities the chance to experience a truly unique urban garden and forest.

Democracy Starts With You: Celebrate National Voter Registration Day!

Tuesday, September 26th is National Voter Registration Day, a national holiday to celebrate our democracy! It is the one day each year that volunteers and organizations from all over the country take action to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to vote.
