The new office will serve low-income and unhoused people and will open in the spring of 2020

COURTESY RENDERING: CLARK KJOS ARCHITECTS  - Outside Ins new Gresham Clinic will provide primary care and will be located at Northeast 162nd Avenue and Burnside Street, near a MAX stop for easy access. Outside In, the well-known Portland medical and youth services organization, is opening a new health clinic in Gresham.

"It will be a primary care clinic with wrap-around services for people who are low income and homeless, similar to our (Southwest 13th Avenue) clinic in downtown Portland," said Lori Slaughter, Outside In's development director.

The Portland organization is moving east because "there is a huge need in East County for healthcare in the populations we serve," Slaughter said.

Outside In is only one of several area nonprofit organizations that have added facilities to serve people in Gresham and East Multnomah County. The Rockwood Boys & Girls Club opened in 2017. New Avenues for Youth joined them in 2018.

Outside In, founded in Portland in 1968, aims to help homeless youth and other marginalized people toward self-sufficiency and better health.
