Welcome to OHDC
Oregon Human Development Corporation (OHDC) is a not-for-profit human service organization that has been providing services for farmworkers and disadvantaged individuals throughout Oregon continuously since 1979. The services include support, referral, advocacy, resources, assistance and education. These programs are funded through a variety of contracts with federal, state, local, and private funding sources.
OHDC's organizational structure consists of a decentralized service delivery system of 7 local service delivery offices throughout the state, and one in Northern Nevada supported by a central administrative office in Portland.
Promoting economic advancement and self-sufficiency of farmworkers and underserved communities.
50 Years of Service The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) serves farmworkers and their families because of a commitment made 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson to restoring our nation's fundamental promise of equality and opportunity. The 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Economic Opportunity Act were twin pillars of the "War on Poverty" to extend the American Dream to those who had been unjustly excluded. One of the key elements of the latter bill was the establishment of programs to assist farmworkers and their families with services such as education, housing, and childcare. Fifty years later, the NFJP program continues to counter the chronic unemployment and underemployment experienced by many working in agricultural labor.

National Farmworker Awareness Week - March 25th -31st, 2018
Oregon Human Development Corporation (OHDC) will be joining The National Long-Sleeve Shirt Drive. We are collecting Long-Sleeve shirts to distribute them to farmworkers in our communities from our six regional offices in the state of Oregon and our office in Northern Nevada. This will help protect farmworkers from pesticides exposure and heat-related illnesses. The shirts do not need to be new just slightly used. Your contributions matter and will make a difference in the lives of farmworkers.
