It’s great news for the homeless and hungry in Central Oregon.

 

Bend's Community Center's Board of Directors have sketched out a plan to keep the financially strapped center operating while paying down it's debt.

 

The Bulletin reports that Board Chair Bruce Abernethy says cutting services except for the most essential, and continued community support, they will be able to pay down the organization's considerable debt.

 

In early September, the Board decided to dissolve the organization; the equivalent to filing bankruptcy in a for-profit business.

 

Abernethey says BCC is also working with the United Way to audit the center's books and has hired an expert to review its bylaws and management policies, hoping the steps will convince the center's donors that their money will be used constructively
