Clatsop Community Action


CARE of Tillamook County



Community Action Team (CAT):
The First 50 Years Serving Columbia County

Leading up to the celebration of CAT’s 50th Anniversary, a series of articles was published to highlight the many programs and services the agency provides. 

These articles are Columbia County-centric because every program is available to residents of Columbia County.  Some programs are also available in Clatsop and Tillamook Counties.  In the near future we will tailor the articles to feature partners in those communities.
