To Qualify

You usually obtain this service after someone refers you to us. Our nurses look at many factors to decide whether the program is a good fit for you. Nurse Home Visiting has no income guidelines.

Our Process

1. After we receive a referral, we meet with you to decide if you qualify for services.

2. You do not need to provide any documents to obtain the service.

3. If we decide you qualify, we provide you in-home support.

Folks can fax our nurses at 1 (541) 804-7234 (must dial one first).
