Grants Pass-based AllCare Health is pleased to announce a $175,000 grant award to Rogue Retreat for an important project supporting citizens transitioning from substance abuse recovery to a healthy life in Southern Oregon.

This project supports members of AllCare Health's Coordinated Care Organization (CCO), low-income community members, Tribal community members as well as communities of color and -- particularly -- community members experiencing substance abuse, behavioral health challenges and housing insecurity.
