Join us at our annual conference!

We have a fantastic lineup of offerings at our annual conference, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Holiday Inn (formerly Red Lion Hotel) in Salem.

Among the highlights:

  • Andrew Grover, Executive Director, Youth Villages Oregon, will give the keynote speech, presenting how crisis support through an emergency room diversion program can help prevent minors from being hospitalized, and help families connect with effective services at home and in the community.
  • Breakout workshops on Oregon ABLE savings accounts and how they work; how parents manage a child’s mental health crisis, including frequently used services and outcomes; and a talk by Liz Obert, a Portland-based artist whose exhibit Dualities has drawn national attention.
