The Oregon Conference is glad to serve the needs of evacuees by providing a safe, stable place for families with RVs to stay while navigating this crisis. While we care deeply about the families that have been staying in Hope Valley, we are only equipped to serve as a short-term site. That’s why we’ve been working behind the scenes with our partners at Clackamas County and the American Red Cross to make sure that when we reach the end of what we can offer, there is a solid plan to take care of the few families that still need support.
Today, we are confident that our partners have an effective transition plan in place to facilitate appropriate shelter for evacuees. This allows us to transition our energy toward longer-term support of fire victims. The state of Oregon has asked us to take the lead in donations management and warehousing in fire-affected areas of Oregon. As we begin to shift our focus toward this longer-term responsibility, we are thankful for the opportunity to work with state and local partners to continue to meet the needs of fire victims.
Gladstone Park Conference Center is open as a Clackamas County evacuation site for anyone evacuating from fires with an RV. The campground provides full hookups for RVs at no cost. Evacuees can access the evacuation site by driving up to 19500 Oatfield Rd., Gladstone, Oregon 97027. Don’t have any RV? Scroll down the page for other open evacuation sites.
