Warm Springs Community Action Team
The Warm Springs Community Action Team (WSCAT) is a non-profit community development organization serving the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon – one of the poorest Reservations in our nation. A look at the statistics about life expectancy and the health of the residents of Warm Springs is disheartening, to say the least. But statistics don’t tell the whole story. Hidden beneath the dismal numbers detailing poverty, poor health and a weak economy, is a strong spirit, determination and sense of hope that just won’t quit. The greatest resource for the success of the Warm Springs community, is its people. It’s all too easy to believe what others say, so we told the story of hope. The story of success. The story of survival. The story of a thriving people controlling their own destiny.
