Restoring trust in family and one another

We learn at a very young age about sharing and the joy it brings.

Being able to give is an integral part of our relationships with one another.

For families, giving is a result of love and trust. And it’s about sharing experi-

extended support systems. Recognition like this is wonderful – especially for our frontline staff who works so hard for children and families. But for me, the real joy comes from meeting with children and families who have completed our programs. You can see and feel their energy as they discuss their experiences and their emotions. They speak of their past simply as it was and discuss a future of promise and success. They finish each other’s sentences. Most importantly, they laugh. They interact. They share.

To better meet the needs of children and families in Oregon, the boards of directors of Oregon-based ChristieCare and Tennessee-based Youth Villages have agreed to a merger. ChristieCare, founded in 1859, serves children statewide in Oregon through residential and educational services based in Clackamas County. The merger will allow for expansion of those residential programs and for the introduction of intensive in-home services to help children and families throughout the state. Lynne Saxton, who has served as chief executive officer of ChristieCare, will be executive director of Youth Villages-ChristieCare of Oregon. “We’ve been familiar with ChristieCare’s great work for The above graph reflects the status at one year post-discharge of children who received Youth Villages’ services. This includes youth served in the Intercept in-home services program, transitional living program, foster care, community-based groups homes and residential centers in Memphis.

He’s been in Youth Villages’ transitional living program for almost a year, and his journey to adulthood has a bright future – he plans to attend Tennessee Technical Center before going on to college. He dreams of being the first in his family to do so.

HAUNTED WEB THRILLS, CHILLS AGAIN Last fall, the HauntedWeb of Horrors raised nearly $80,000 to benefit Youth Villages’ programs. It is one of many events throughout the year that raise money for such Youth Villages programs as transitional living and mentoring.

ANGELA GETS A RIDE Angela, a participant in Youth Villages’ transitional living program, recently received a car that was donated to Youth Villages. Angela was shocked to tears of joy about the car. She attends Southwest Community College and has a 2-year-old daughter. She was discharged from the TL program late last year. 6
