"Mother's Tale – Kimberly"
Published on Nov 18, 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

Rotary Duck Race 2016 Awarded $40,000 to Willamette Family
Published on Nov. 18, 2016

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.
