A Mother's Tale
Published on September 27, 2016
Kimberly moved to Oregon in 2005 where she started working at a local fast food restaurant. During that time she met a man that would soon be the father of her child. After a few years of dating, Kimberly was introduced to meth and other substances. Kimberly and the man were homeless for over five years. In April of 2012 Kimberly found out she was three months pregnant. She gave birth to her son in October of 2012; he only weighed three and a half pounds. DHS took over custody of her son and denied Kimberly the right to see him. It wasn’t until DHS changed her son’s foster care status to adoption, did Kimberly realize she could lose him forever. In 2014 Kimberly attended treatment at Willamette Family’s Women’s residential program. There she learned how to live a sober life as well as good and effective parenting skills. Kimberly was assigned a Family Advocate through Willamette Family that helped her through the process of obtaining custody of her son. Kimberly is excited about the life she has chosen for herself and her son. Take a look at this video to get a glimpse of what motivates Kimberly every single day.
“Today, I am able to be a mother to my son, pay my bills, and be a clean and productive member of society. I am proud to be able to do service work and I go to meetings and have a sponsor. I have been clean since July 19, 2014. I never in my life thought I would see this.” – Kimberly

Partnership with the Eugene Municipal Court
Willamette Family Treatment Services (WFTS) is excited to share that we have partnered with the Eugene Municipal Court who is pioneering a City Community Court. The court is held every Friday at the city library in downtown Eugene. This innovative court is focused on providing individuals who meet the court’s criteria with the opportunity to engage needed behavioral health services, rather than traditional punitive sanctions.
As a Community Court Service Provider WFTS has a connection table set up at the court each week. Daniel Jenkins, our community court liaison, welcomes participants, processes their court documents, and engages them in the admissions process at our Rapid Access Center the same day as court. With over fifty years of experience working with behavioral health issues in Eugene and Lane County, Willamette Family is very proud to partner with our community providing accessible, quality mental health and substance abuse/addiction care for men, women, youth, and families that are struggling and willing to try a new way of life.
