Black Lives Matter
Willamette Family Statement on the Black Lives Matter Movement
Published on June 9, 2020
Since our beginning over 55 years ago, Willamette Family has proudly stood with disadvantaged individuals in their fight to obtain equity and justice. It is our founding principle, and continues to be the foundation upon which we exist.
Willamette Family stands arm-in-arm with our Black and Brown communities, our Black and Brown clients, staff and alumni, today and every day. We share in the anger and sadness rippling throughout our country. We also share a collective responsibility to speak out against brutality, social injustice for all, and racism and to unite in fearless pursuit of sustainable, systemic transformation.
As a 'Family' we are deeply aware that one member’s suffering is our suffering, that only by creating genuine equity can we prosper. And that this suffering affects our entire community and nation. We have learned that recovery involves soul searching and changed attitudes in order to be successful. To this end we are committed to listening, learning, embracing and actively changing these systems perpetuating social and racial injustices.
We are listening. Please email us at WeListen@wfts.org to share ways in which Willamette Family can improve equity within our organization. We seek feedback from our staff, our clients and alumni, as well as our communities of color and the public to send their feedback to us.
Our contribution as a health and social service agency rests on the values and principles that we hold dear. These principles direct our actions and our effectiveness, day in and day out. As a Family, the core of these principles are compassion and respect, and we believe that together we can make a difference.
This week has been an especially exciting one, as we have been able to bring back many of our previously furloughed staff. Among “welcome backs” and “it’s so good to see you's,” we offer a thank you to our staff for returning to serve our clients and provide services that are so essential to our community. While we are still working through this crisis, we are overjoyed to be reunified with our “family.”

Life is a Beautiful Thing
Published on December 4, 2019
Losing her children again for the second time was very difficult and painful, yet Chelsea knew this was the only way to try to make things right. When she realized that her maternal instincts alone were not enough to properly parent her children, she temporarily gave them up so that she could work to improve herself. She stopped the downward spiral when she saw herself on the path of repeating the same cycle she had gone with her mom. She did not want her children to go through the same experiences that she had as a child.
For Chelsea, that is a risk she’s not willing to take.

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.

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.
