What is the CDDC?
The Corvallis Daytime Drop-in Center (CDDC) is a 501(c)(3) that has a long history of providing a variety of services to persons who are homeless and/or low income. Initially, the CDDC was a peer-run center known as The Circle of Hope, and was established to provide a socialization place for people with psychiatric disabilities.
As time went on, the CDDC attracted a variety of people including persons with dual diagnosis, individuals who were homeless, and other low-income members of the community. In the last few years, the center has accepted support from recognized community leaders and its organizational structure has been changed to reflect a stable base of community leadership.
The CDDC board has been working to expand the vision of the center to meet the significant mental, physical and social needs of the people who come. The center is staffed by volunteers. Each week approximately 150 hours of community volunteer time is donated to provide the services of the CDDC.
