Despite recent positive jobs reports, many people in Central Oregon continue to struggle. NeighborImpact Executive Director Sharon Miller has been at the agency for 26 years. She says unfortunately right now, the need is greater than ever. “I just look at the growth of the Food Bank program. We're serving 19,000 people a month. Before the recession, we served maybe 13,000 or 14,000. That's a huge jump and that's a consistent number every month coming into one of our member agencies. Miller says they've seen numbers increase in the energy assistance program and well as Head Start that provides preschool for low income children.
