Central Oregon Veterans Outreach

Making a difference, one life at a time

COVO’s Outreach door is open, with recommended COVID-19 precautions in place, for people to get help AND accept donations.  We are still doing outreach trips to the camps.  With fewer places to go for help, going out to keep food, water, accurate information – and hope- available is more important than ever.  Our case managers are still working by phone, email, website, social media.  We are still doing intakes, answering questions and helping all who contact us as we can in the circumstances.  We are in daily contact with other partners and COVID-19 response/planning groups.

The number of people seeking help has doubled in the past week.


Baby Formula, Baby Food, Diapers, Canned Goods: Tuna, Beef, Chicken, Ham, soups high in protein, Vegetables, Fruits, and Protein Bars

Camping Supplies:  Tents, Tarps, Sleeping Bags, Propane, and Solar Showers 

 Here is how to help us keep going:






Share accurate information for getting help. Not everyone has access to online info/social media!
