Michael: A Father Who Found His Way Home

Published on March 30, 2017

I was born in a city in Central California where gangs and addiction are prevalent. I lived in a house full of addicts; I was born to two addicted parents. At an early age, I was taken out of the home and was raised by my grandparents. I had a couple of male figures, but it wasn’t my dad. I went searching for another male role model and that role model happened to be a gang. My involvement with the gang fed my addiction as well as my addiction fed my criminality. For years it went on like this…

After I met my wife and had my children, I thought everything was going to be different, but it wasn’t the case. I wanted to be happy. I think that’s what it was, but no matter what I did, I couldn’t be happy.

My turning point came around when I finally saw the real impact of my behavior to my children and how it can affect their future. I called Willamette Family and they welcomed me with open arms. It was so good to finally see my children being so proud of me because I was doing something right. It warms me inside everytime I see my children happy. It was one the best decision I’ve made in lilfe. Willamette Family showed me what I was looking for.

Kaiser Permanente Grant Ceremony

Willamette Family is one of the three non-profit agencies in Eugene that receive a grant from Kaiser Permanente to expand a housing project for its population. Over 3500 individuals receive treatment through Willamette Family for substance use disorders each year. Of those, over 80% have experienced homelessness at least once during the year. This grant will address key barriers for this population in the following manner.

  • Willamette Family will hire an additional housing specialist and an additional peers support specialist to work with each individual on the issues that prevent them from securing stable housing
  • Willamette Family will develop and deliver a state certified training program to train community health workers both within the agency, and for other community providers
  • Willamette Family will train two staff members in the Second Chance Renters Curriculum to provide individuals with the skills needed to successful rent and retain housing
  • Willamette Family will use its Rapid Access Center to identify housing needs when an individual initially seeks treatment and services, and begin developing an individualized plan with each client to successfully obtain housing and to support them once the complete treatment

This wonderful grant will provide hope, support and services to help these individuals find housing and become part of this great community.

Rotary Duck Race 2016 Awarded $40,000 to Willamette Family

Published on Nov. 18, 2016

Video Sources: KEZI News

How the $40,000 is being used:
Willamette Family is using the $40,000 to provide added support to our Dad’s Program. The Dad’s Program allows for five dad’s to live in a house with their child while receiving drug and alcohol treatment. The Dad’s Program is a family style home where the dad’s and their children reside full time. During the day the dad’s attend Intensive Day Treatment while the children attend school or Willamette Family’s Child Development Center, depending on the child’s age. Willamette Family’s Intensive Day Treatment is comprised of 20 treatment hours a week provided by highly trained and qualified Alcohol and Drug Counselors. In the evening the dads take care of their child as well as maintain the house by cooking and cleaning. The dad’s learn about addiction and recovery while also learning valuable skills such as time management, how to be the primary parent, how to access resources in the community, and more. The men have access to a staff member at all times for support while they develop and grow into capable and confident dads. Thank you to the Great Rotary Raffle and the Rotary Clubs of Lane County for supporting this program and keeping dads with their children.

Partnership with the Eugene Municipal Court

Published on Sept. 22, 2016

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.
