NEXT STORY (11/22/16): CONCERT FOR A CAUSED

Byron Fulop-Laing

This house will be renovated to house expanded health services.

A FREE CLASSICAL CONCERT FOR A CAUSE

POSTED ON NOVEMBER 22, 2016

Byron Fulup-Laing is an exceptional musician studying to become a world-class violinist at the Music Institute of Chicago. For several years now, he has raised funds for his education by "busking" (playing on streetcorners for donations). Byron has developed a huge heart from the homeless during his time playing on the streets, and has begun an annual violin concert to benefit causes that help homeless people. With homelessness a major issue right now in Portland, this concert could not come at a better time. Byron's 4th Annual Chamber Music Concert aims to raise $3,000 to help homeless people through four organizations (PACS, JOIN, Street Roots, and Human Solutions). It is Sunday night, November 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Tabernacle Seventh-day Adventist Church. For more info on the event and Byron's ambitions, check out his Facebook page.

New Clinic Groundbreaking

This house will be renovated to house expanded health services.

DENTAL/MEDICAL CLINIC PERMITS APPROVED, GROUNDBREAKING SCHEDULED

POSTED ON NOVEMBER 10, 2016

UPDATE, 11/22/2016: PACS broke ground as scheduled on November 16. About 65 people attended. See more photos from the event at our Facebook page.

ORIGINAL POST, 11/10/2016: The PACS Dental Initiative has received a huge boost, with renovation plans now green-lighted by Portland's permitting office. PACS had been involved in a back and forth process with Portland, trying to define and integrate changes required by the city. That process took nearly a year, but is finally complete, and PACS is ready to move forward in renovating the new facility. Completion is expected in 2017. Once completed, this facility will house dental services for low-income families, while also expanding medical capacity, and adding an ophthalmology office. A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, November 16 at 12:30 p.m. The new facility is located at 1421 Northeast 109th Avenue in Portland.
