COI Serving Linn County

Community Outreach has been proud to serve the mid-Willamette Valley since 1971. And while many of our programs are based in Corvallis, our clients come to us from all over the valley, particularly Linn County:



Last year, 40% of the people served in COI’s emergency shelter came from Linn County. Nearly a quarter of the people served in our transitional shelter were also from Linn County.

COI distributed 330 food boxes to Linn County residents, about 20% of the food boxes we distributed overall. We also operated 47 no-cost medical clinics in Lebanon and a weekly low-cost dental clinic in Albany.



We’re truly grateful for the generosity of our Linn County supporters. Last year, we received contributions from more than 30 individuals, businesses, and organizations in Linn County, making up 2% of the donations we received overall.

We’re also proud to partner with other organizations—like Jackson Street Youth Services, the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence, the United Way of Linn County, and Western University of Health Sciences—who are making a real impact in Albany and the surrounding area.


Staying Connected

While Corvallis and Albany are mutually supportive communities, some key programs and services can be just out of reach to people in poverty. That’s why, last year, COI distributed more than 600 bus loop tickets to Albany, and the year before distributed more than 450.
