Open house set for March 14
SALEM, Ore. (March 6, 2017) – Youth Villages Oregon has opened an office in Salem to provide increased intensive in-home services to children with emotional and behavioral problems and families in Marion, Linn, Benton and Polk counties.
“We’ve had a significant increase in the demand for our Intercept intensive in-home services which strengthen and restore families, allowing children to live successfully at home and avoid foster care,” said Andrew Grover, executive director. Services also stabilize and support families who have adopted children from the child welfare system.
The team of two supervisors and eight specialists will work from the Salem office helping 32 children and families on any given day.
There will be an open house at the office, 565 Union St., N.E., Suite 100, from 1 to 3 p.m. March 14.
“We’ll make our Salem team available to community partners and give an inside look at the services we’re offering to youth and families in the Mid-Valley area,” Grover said.
Following the open house, Youth Villages Oregon will host a happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at The Speakeasy at Archive Coffee & Bar, 102 Liberty St. NE, Suite 102.
