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.

A survey team from CARF International* will be visiting on

June 29-30, 2020

We invited the surveyors to evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality. The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. As a result of this survey, we may earn or continue accreditation.

As part of the survey, the surveyors will interview people who receive services, their families, our staff, and others. Some questions the survey team members might ask people are:

  • Do we provide a clean and safe setting?
  • Do you receive the services you need and want?
  • Are you treated with respect?
  • Do you take part in planning your services?
  • Are you told what you need to know about your services?
  • Are your questions answered in a way you understand?
  • Do you know where to go with questions or concerns?

If you would like to talk with one of the survey team members or want to learn more about CARF International, please let one of our staff members know. You may also contact CARF International directly.
