Our Vision

Sweet Home celebrates a thriving business community that fosters prosperity and wellbeing for all.

What We Do

The Sweet Home Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center stands as the unified voice of the business community. Our goal is to promote, protect and improve business’s and business opportunities in Sweet Home and through our regional partners. Our mission is to assist and contribute to continual community growth by advocating for a pro-business environment and contributing to the increase of a quality workforce in order to enrich the region’s quality of life.

In support of our mission we will continue our focus on member services, business advocacy, talent development, and increased tourism.

As advocates, The Chamber seeks to provide opportunities for business growth and learning opportunities to help the community be more productive and profitable, by creating opportunities for those who live in Sweet Home and those who visit to invest, prosper, and enjoy.

The Sweet Home Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center focuses on four pillars:

Member Services

Our members are the backbone of our organization and our town. It is our proud job to support them daily by providing opportunities for business growth and education to help the community be more productive and profitable.

Business Advocacy

A thriving business means a thriving town. As an organization we strive to advocate for consistent business success that increases the options available locally and the option for increased local employment.

Talent Development

We partner with various community organizations and committees to strengthen the upward potential of local businesses by encouraging growth of professional talent within the region.


Sweet Home is without a doubt a treasure for families and friends to add to their annual vacation plans. Whether you will be joining us for a traditional Christmas experience,  a Summer on the lake or both, we look forward to seeing you soon. Welcome Home!
