2009 – Uncovering Hidden Support – Oregon Project Independence

Our favorite project for 2009 was for Oregon Project Independence, a state-funded program that serves senior citizens or individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other related diseases who are challenged in their abilities to function independently. The survey work found that while very few Oregonians were aware of Oregon Project Independence and the services they provided, they strongly supported the program. In fact, Oregon voters showed strong support for proposals that would eliminate medical expense tax deductions if the funds were used for Oregon Project Independence services.
