Meet Chelsea:

A "picture-perfect" life...that's how Chelsea described the first 8 years of her life with her family - she was living in a house with mom, dad, and sisters. She had a "normal" family upbringing until her mom fell back into her disease of addiction, and suddenly Chelsea's world was drastically changed. Her once perfect and typical childhood became rocky and unstable. Trauma, abuse and neglect became part of her daily struggles. Chelsea's adolescent year were guided and shaped by instability, chaos, and pain. (Click here to see her story)

Published on July 22, 2019

The Lund Report

The millions of dollars and countless hours that Oregon health officials have devoted to fighting the opioid epidemic in recent years have had an effect: Overdose deaths from prescription painkillers have fallen to a 14-year low.

At the same time, another drug threat is on the rise: methamphetamine. Oregon’s rate of meth use is 76 percent higher than the rest of the country, according to federal data, and that’s led to a spike in deaths.

Willamette Family MediaSuccess Story:

Meet Graham, Jennifer & Kaycee
...their story is just one of many waiting to be told.

Published on November 27, 2017

The Child Development Center (CDC) allows parents to attend substance abuse treatment and mental health services while their child/ children receive therapeutic services in the CDC. The CDC teachers help children learn how to walk, talk, write, count, interact with other children, and much more. Many of the children who attend the center have been born affected by prenatal substance use, and/or have experienced abuse and/or neglect in their past. The teachers are trauma-informed and work hard to provide a therapeutic environment for all of the children.

Kaycee was cared for at the Child Development Center (CDC) while Jennifer and Graham were in treatment. Her mother Jennifer was receiving treatment through the Women’s Residence Program and her father Graham was receiving treatment through the Dad’s Program. Both of those programs help clients to manage their recovery, while allowing them to be active parents in their children’s lives and spend time parenting their children. 

Without Willamette Family’s Child Development Center, many children would be separated from their parent and placed in foster care. The CDC gives parents and children the ability to remain together in a safe and well monitored environment.
