Coronavirus (COVID-19) SCORE Operations Update & Business Resources

Small businesses are a vital part of the U.S. economy. With the recent news and concerns of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), SCORE is sharing the latest business guidance, assistance and resources.


The health of small business owners, their employees and the SCORE network of volunteers remain our top priority. In the wake of recent developments relating to COVID-19, our local workshops have been postponed or will be held online. Please check our workshop page for more information. You can also view SCORE LIVE webinars and online workshops. 

Phone Mentoring

Following government advice, SCORE will not be holding in-person mentoring until further notice.  We offer phone-mentoring for small, growing or start-up businesses during this challenging climate. 

We have a local dedicated mentor that can support small businesses who need advice or help with the loan application for the US Small Business Association (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).

Small businesses can phone (541) 465 6600 to arrange a phone-mentoring session with SCORE’s local mentors. Alternatively email:


SCORE's mentors, comprised of active and retired business men and women, provide clients with free and confidential business counseling. Counseling can be conducted at the client's place of business, at our chapter headquarters, by telephone or via email.
