Portland is home to an estimated 14,000 chronically homeless people. Facing the crisis head on is our February speaker, Rachel Solotaroff. She joined Central City Concern as the medical director in 2006 and today leads the initiatives to end homelessness in our community. Join us on Feb 27th as we discuss the steps being taken to address this crisis and where the organization plans to focus its efforts.

Rachel’s work at CCC

Rachel Solotaroff, MD, MCR, has served as Central City Concern’s (CCC) President and CEO since Oct. 1, 2017, overseeing all aspects of the organization. She started her CCC tenure in 2006 as Medical Director of the Old Town Clinic, which provides primary care to men and women, many facing the impact of homelessness.

In partnership with Oregon Health & Science University, Rachel designed and implemented a Social Medicine Curriculum for OHSU Internal Medicine residents, providing an opportunity for physicians-in-training to learn from the unique CCC model of health care. Rachel coordinated the larger project of fully integrating the continuum of services provided by Central City Concern, including housing, behavioral health and primary care, with the goal of creating seamless, comprehensive care to support clients in their journeys to self-sufficiency.

    A veteran organizer and coalition-builder in the national homeless and affordable housing movement, I am considering coming out of retirement to help advance empowering solutions. This brunch would be a great way to meet the current Leadership – to do it right. (Let’s ALL do our part, yes?}

    I had a sister who was homeless for over a decade. I find volunteering with groups providing for those who live outside very rewarding and am writing about my sister’s experience.

      I worked directly with Dr. Solotaroff as an A&D Counselor and Case Manager with Central City Concern. I continue to work with very vulnerable people in our city and I would really love to hear her thoughts about how to address the growing homeless crisis.

    Central City Concern got my friend off the streets. Thank God he isn’t homeless no more. I’d like to see the CEO speak.

    I’d like to expand my mind on this issue more. I work downtown and part of my job, I am able to interact with homeless people and I always want to come from a respectful place when talking to another human.

    Yes please.
