Russian Oregon Social Services
Supporting the Russian-speaking population

Russian Oregon Social Services (ROSS) was established by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) in 1994 to serve the needs of Russian-speaking refugees and immigrants.

More than 100,000 Russian-speaking refugees and immigrants from the former Soviet Union currently reside in the Portland metro area, and the numbers are expected to increase. Census figures show that no other place in the nation has had more of an influx from the former Soviet Union than the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is number two in the nation for Russian-speaking newcomers.


Our Services
Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services
• Community orientation and cross-cultural education
• English (ESL) classes and ESL tutoring
• Culturally-appropriate health education
• Information and referrals
• Assistance obtaining emergency dental services

Other programs may become available in the future; call us or check our website for updates.

Our mission is to successfully integrate Russian-speaking immigrants and refugees into Oregon and southwest Washington communities by providing services that increase independence, enable economic self-sufficiency, and improve mental and physical well-being. We are currently the only agency that works exclusively with the Russian-speaking population in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in southwest Washington.

Russian Oregon Social Services has been fulfilling its mission in many different areas. Strong partnerships with local social services agencies, victim service and healthcare providers and government agencies have been a great asset in pursuing our goals. Our experienced bilingual and bicultural staff is another invaluable asset, allowing us to identify and meet the needs of the Russian-speaking population.

Strong working relationships with the Russian-speaking community that we have been forging since 1994 enable us to build high levels of mutuality, respect and trust, and provide culturally appropriate and language-specific services that have a meaningful impact.

All our services are free and confidential.
