Youth Villages Oregon serves families through intensive in-home services and residential treatment.
In 2011, Youth Villages merged with ChristieCare, an organization that has served thousands of children and families in Oregon since 1859, the year the state was founded. This tradition carries on through residential treatment for children with emotional and behavioral problems at the
Christie Campus in Lake Oswego and supplemental residential programs and activities at the Clackamas River Campus in Oregon City.
In addition to residential treatment, Youth Villages provides our Intercept program of intensive in-home services to families in Oregon.
Intercept is a proven alternative treatment for children and youth who otherwise would be placed in foster care, residential treatment, detention centers, hospitals or other juvenile facilities. Diverting youth from these out-of-home placements, Intercept family intervention specialists provide guidance and treatment resources for youth and families in their own homes.
Success in Oregon
Youth Villages programs work in Oregon. Based on research conducted six months post-discharge,* of the children from Oregon who have received at least 60 days of service in our in-home program:
- 79% of youth are at home with family
- 90% of youth report no trouble with the law
- 83% of youth are in school, have graduated from high school, or are in GED classes
*These percentages reflect outcomes recorded through December 2012
