 Who We Are

It takes a wide range of amazing people to achieve the mission of White Bird Clinic and to be successful in the work that we do. We provide compassionate humanistic healthcare and supportive services to individuals in our community, so everyone receives the care they need. In times of crisis, White Bird is a key agency in the continuum of care for our community. We are Lane County’s Crisis Intervention Service and operate CAHOOTS, a mobile crisis and medic response team for Eugene-Springfield’s Public Safety System.

White Bird is a Federally Qualified Health Center that receives funds from the HRSA Health Center Program to provide primary care services and offers emergency, preventative, and restorative dental care. Uninsured patients are charged on a sliding scale based on income. We provide substance use, end-of-life, and mental health counseling. Benefits assisters can connect clients to OHP and SSI/SSDI supports as well as lifeline phone services and food stamps. Our priority is to serve people who are unserved, underinsured, disabled and/or homeless.
