The (OSWWACDC) is a collaboration of multiple nonprofit organizations striving to increase their strength and capacity to improve the support that is being provided to the Refugees & Immigrant community. Member organizations have identified fragmentation from each other and isolation from mainstream institutions as primary barriers to the integration of Refugees & Immigrants into the larger society. By building this coalition, combining their strength and experience, leaders of the Refugee and Immigrant community are influencing and creating awareness among stakeholders to increase support to the Refugee and Immigrant community within the state of Oregon.
The Mission of Oregon & SW Washington African Community Development Center is to promote solidarity and collaboration among grassroots Community Based Minority Organizations (CBMOs) serving refugees and immigrants to strengthen and provide a voice for these communities in Central Oregon. The objective of the project is to bring together the community partners in Oregon & SW Washington African Community who are currently implementing the same objectives. OSWWACDC highlights the benefits and advantages in terms of sharing skills, supporting each other, developing a strong partnership and increasing the potential for generating learning on specific areas of projects. Working together will develop an alliance among core partners’ organizations for future project ideas. The project brings together a unique alliance of African organizations in the Oregon & SW Washington area. This partnership will be for the benefit of the entire community. One of our roles is to facilitate immigrants within Oregon & SW Washington to be productive citizens in the community and to be less dependent on the government’s social programs. This will be achieved through short intensive career enhancing education programs that will provide employment opportunities upon successful completion. We will undertake to educate immigrants on preventative diseases, nutritional matters and optimum health options, new immigrants will also be informed on how to access health care within their respective communities, and cultural adjustments that are expected. All this will be a means of reduction on health cost to the state of Oregon
