Chiloquin Visions in Progress
Our mission is to support ideas and activities that foster community prosperity, health,and well-being in the greater Chiloquin area.
Chiloquin Visions in Progress (CVIP) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community benefit organization formed in 1995. CVIP serves the greater Chiloquin area through projects that result in a healthy social, economic, natural, and cultural environment.
CVIP sponsors or supports numerous community and area projects and programs that forward our mission in the community. Check out the links on the "Services" page to learn more about our organization and what we are doing in the community.
CVIP owns and operates the Chiloquin Community Center in the heart of downtown Chiloquin.
Chiloquin Visions in Progress received its tax-exempt status in 1995 as an outgrowth of several community revitalization efforts with countless hours of volunteer dedication by Chuck and Sally Wells, Bill and Faith Wilkins, Tom and Inger Burns, Will Hatcher, and others. It has continued these efforts in mission and activities. We have sponsored and supported an ever-growing list of projects and programs, each dedicated to the growth and development of the Chiloquin community. Whether economic development, health and well-being, social or cultural growth, CVIP balances and coordinates all these toward the common goal of bringing our community together with honor and respect for our heritage.
If anything says “Vision” to the city of Chiloquin it is her Community Center. It is, in our opinion, the pearl of the city. Built entirely by CVIP volunteer efforts, fund-raisers, donations and private foundation grants, the Center was dedicated in June of 2004 as a “welcoming place for the whole community.” Now in its seventeenth year of operation, that goal has become a reality, and the Center is a core element of the Chiloquin community. The Community Center is a busy place. It houses the Chiloquin Branch Library, the Two Rivers Art Gallery & Gift Shop, Klamath County Corrections, Klamath Basin Behavior Health and, of course, the office of Chiloquin Visions in Progress. It provides space for Women, Infants & Children services, Klamath Alcohol & Drug Abuse meetings, Wellbriety (Native Substance Abuse Treatment), and many other social services. It also hosts public meetings and private events of all kinds. There are two spacious meeting rooms available for rent by community members for public or private events, and we have a VCU available which is ZOOM capable for virtual meetings. The average day sees up to 50-70 people come through the front door for a variety of reasons. More enter through the side entrances directly into the Library and Gallery and the Library boasts 60-plus daily patrons alone.
