“We are proud to partner with Rogue Credit Union as this community responds and heals from the fires. These resources will provide comprehensive medical, dental, and mental healthcare and COVID-19 testing through our mobile health center at various shelters, parking lots, and parks,” said La Clinica CEO, Brenda Johnson. “We will coordinate our presence and services with other fire relief efforts, and for those needing additional help accessing community support, we will also deploy a trusted bilingual/bicultural community health worker to provide care coordination, social services, and wraparound support. We simply couldn’t do this work without the generosity of the community. We are humbled by the work ahead of us and honored to be in service.”  

Donations both large and small have come from individuals, businesses, foundations and other credit unions, with funds coming from as far away as Europe.
