Set perfectly at the base of the Umpqua National Forest, with stunning views of the Cascade Mountain Range and the unmistakable sound of the Colliding Rivers, we know living in Glide is truly something special. But we also know living in a small town can be challenging. To truly love where you live, you need more than just breathtaking scenery. You need access to services, resources, and events that meet your needs and strengthen your sense of community.

That’s where we come in.

Glide Revitalization is committed to bringing new and sustainable resources to Glide

By listening to our neighbors and navigating complex federal, state, and local systems, we’ve figured out how to fill the gaps and bring our community what it needs.

  • We’ve learned what our residents need to succeed and offer childcare for working parents.
  • We’ve seen how hard our students work and have established scholarships to support their dreams. 
  • We know how important it is to restore our lands and protect our homes so we have ongoing reforestation and mitigation programs to prevent disasters.

Through all this and more we’re dedicated to creating a vibrant community in Glide. 

Whether you’re looking for assistance, resources, or simply a sense of belonging, Glide Revitalization is here to help. We’re a place you can turn to when you have questions, concerns, or challenges and need someone who will listen and help you take action.

Fueling Local Growth

We understand that true economic growth starts with investing in our community, which is why we prioritize local impact in all our actions. From purchasing goods and services from locally-owned businesses to choosing local contractors whenever possible, we’re committed to keeping dollars circulating locally.

Our Blueprint for Renewal

Rebuilding from the Archie Creek fire has taught us we not only need an organization that offers recovery services, but we need an organization that helps prevent these tragedies and bolsters our community for quick and sustainable recovery. We need to build something that helps our community thrive.
