“Mt Hood Center is a special place. Its story is that which has built our past and now one that holds our future. There are few places so unique, in that simply being upon its grounds evokes a sense of pride in community and offers a feeling of genuine support, encouragement, and opportunity. A place where each member of the staff shares their unique talents openly and encourages others to do the same.”
