COVID-19 Response

To All Our Stakeholders Regarding COVID-19 

Updated July 5, 2023

The health and well-being of our Corpsmembers, Staff and our Central Oregon communities is paramount, and we take COVID-19 safety very seriously. Heart of Oregon Corps provides paid job training, education, and stewardship that empowers and inspires positive change in the lives of young people. We deem it critical to offer these opportunities as a part of national pandemic recovery efforts. We believe our local community and youth need us now more than ever. 


Heart of Oregon Corps is operating all six youth programs. Our offices are open! Visit our Contact Us page for office hours and maps.


HOC has lifted its corpsmember vaccine mandate as of 4/27/22 and its staff vaccine mandate as of 6/18/2023.  HOC lifted mask requirements indoors and outdoors, and quarantine requirements on March 12, 2022.  Masks are welcomed, but not required at HOC.
