Meeting Local Needs Together:

Baker County has coordinated with the local faith-based community and service groups, and we are ready to work together to meet needs that may arise from the spread of COVID-19 and the Stay Home, Save Lives order. The social fabric of this community is strong, and it’s important to look out for each other as we work through this unprecedented event together. If anyone has a need that family or friends cannot help with, such as getting medications picked up or groceries delivered, please call Baker County and we will do our best to assist. The number is 541-523-0015. If the call goes to voicemail, please leave a message with your contact information and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
