Meet Our Community Partners
The Center for Community and Global Health partners with four Portland community organizations to explore how story can help to heal. These projects are funded by the Mellon Foundation and the Healing Social Suffering Through Narrative program grant.
These unique community projects address social suffering in Portland communities impacted by circumstances such as inequitable access to higher education, and physical and mental illness. Each project is designed to be mutually beneficial: providing community partners with the resources they need to expand the scope of their work. This work brings members of the Portland community together in partnership with Lewis & Clark College students and faculty in the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences/
