More about the Civic Life Community Safety Program

Civic Life Community Safety is actively looking for ways to adapt our work to serve Portland’s many communities during this time of physical distancing. We continue to support Portlanders to connect with a range of free safety education and partner resources. Among those who may be experiencing social isolation, older adults and people with disabilities, are some of the most vulnerable during this time.

The training will provide resources and tips on how to care for yourself and others, as well as other safety resources. The training is another way for community to come together virtually and to support one another with creative ideas on reaching out to neighbors or anyone who is isolated, and especially those without digital access. You can request a training online at www.portlandoregon.gov/civic/cs or if you have any other questions for us please call 503-823-4064.
