Legal Question in Criminal Law in Oregon

I didn't finish my community service in the time allowed and was arrested . I;ve been to court once and have to go again to show cause . I don't qualify for a court appointed lawyer , and really can't afford one . Do I need a lawyer or can I do this myself ?

But if this is supervised probation for something like domestic violence or any felony probation, then it it would be a bad idea to go to court without a lawyer.
