Needy, also known as Hardscrabble,[1][2] is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States.[3] James H. Brents gave the community its names,[4] which may be such because of its poverty. Needy's post office was established on February 16, 1885 and John M. Bacon was its postmaster. It closed on September 19, 1903.[1] It is now served by the Canby post office.
