History & Future
Condensed History –
food programs have been in the area since the 1960's.
In 1981, volunteers from local churches started collecting and providing
furniture and appliances to assist fire victims, families just
starting out, and others in
need. Based in storage units until 2008.
Approximately 600 pieces were recycled in 1992
and 1200 pieces-per-year by
The name South Lincoln Resources was adopted in 1983 and a nonprofit tax
status, 501(c)(3), was obtained. Work with other assistance groups
was begun and
Several church and civic groups were packaging and distributing food
Thanksgiving and Christmas. A coordinated effort was needed and
South Lincoln Resources. Churches, civic and fraternal
groups, local merchants, Angell Job
Corp, the Forest Service and schools all
work together with the community gathering food
and money to meet the needs.
From a small beginning, 350 to 400 "Baskets" are
Thanksgiving and Christmas now.
An Emergency Voucher Assistance Program was revived in 1991. The program
handled by and supported by local churches. SLR administers the common
oversees the program. Services and guidelines are adjusted annually
for effectively aiding
The Yachats Assistance Referral Network (YARN) was formed in 1986 in
became the Help and Assistance Referral Team (HEART). After
realizing that their needs
could be better met if coordinated with SLR, the
groups merged in 1991 and consolidated
south county social services.
The Waldport American Legion/VFW had a Medical Equipment Program for many
years. This was turned over to SLR in 2003.
The Furniture/Appliances Program and the Medical Equipment Program moved
Keady Street location in 2008 to share operating costs with Waldport
Food Share and
Adventist Clothing Share.
Food and Clothing still share space in the Keady Center and both programs
pains. SLR obtained a grant from Oregon Food Bank in 2010, to
make renovations to the
Center to enlarge and improve storage areas for food
and clothing. Space for the SLR
programs was reduced. Most of the labor on
the project was provided by volunteer trade
professionals and skilled tinkerers.
Future Plans –
Many services based in Waldport could be lost to flood or tsunami. SLR is
Waldport Food Share and Adventist Clothing Share to secure a
facility on higher land for all
the programs of the three organizations. The
capital campaign called Building & Sharing
Resources also includes an
emergency preparedness partnership with Central Oregon
Coast Fire & Rescue
District. Emergency Services will have an additional base of
complete with food, clothing, medical equipment and space to work.
As our programs have changed over the years, they will continue evolving
through the years to come. Many ideas have been discussed for new programs.
One long range plan is developing an endowment to cover all operational
costs and allow 100% of community contributions directly serve our neighbors
in need. (In 2011, 91.5% of revenue went directly into service and 8.5% was
the cost of operating.)
