Media and Interested Parties

Clackamas County supports a network of severe weather warming centers for people experiencing homelessness on nights when the weather is expected to be dangerously cold. They open when the temperature is predicted to be 33 degrees or lower (including wind chill). They may also open when other conditions like wind or flooding make sleeping outdoors especially dangerous.

Living Well with Diabetes

Clackamas County is offering “Living Well with Diabetes," a six-week workshop offered at various locations in Clackamas County. Participants will discover “tools” that can improve one’s health and outlook on life. Free workshops are facilitated in small groups (10 -15 adults) for 2 ½ hours each week, over 6 weeks.
