Laurelwood Center Opening Next Week

You are currently viewing Laurelwood Center Opening Next Week

What we have formerly referred to as the “Foster Shelter” has been officially named the Laurelwood Center. This is likely a reference to nearby Laurelwood Park, which, by the way, is getting a remake (see our prior coverage of that story here).

Maggie Vespa, a reporter for KGW News, was given a tour of Laurelwood Center yesterday and tweeted photos of the facility.

Representative from your Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association have been invited to tour the facility on Monday and learn about volunteer opportunities to support our new neighbors. Per Maggie’s Twitter post above, if you would like to volunteer, you can call 503.488.7745.

Update: here is a link to the full story from KGW.

    Good Morning!
    Thank you for having this option. My name is Michele and I am a Central City Concern mental health counselor. I have a client that would really like to stay here. My client has a service animal and physical needs (has diabetes and uses a walker). What are the next steps to have her enroll? Thank you!
