Safe Families For Children

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children is a community service movement that serves vulnerable, isolated families in crisis situations – some of which may have the potential to lead to abuse and/or neglect. Wrapping a circle of support around these families we create extended family-like relationships, including a safe home for children to live in temporarily, that give parents space to get their lives back on track until they are in better place to care for their children again. This network of relationships keeps children from entering the foster care system and ultimately helps keep families together.

Youth Transition Program (YTP)

Youth Transition Program

YTP is a unique vocational program offered by our school district in partnership with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Service and the University of Oregon. YTP assists students in addressing barriers and challenges so they successfully transition from school to post-high school opportunities.
