Family Guides

The Family Guides provide a quick orientation to parents/guardians when their youth are placed in OYA custody. These guides are mailed to parents along with other important information, including contact information for their youth's case workers.

Please click on the links below to access the guides (you will need the free Acrobat Reader to open the documents -- a link is available at the bottom of this page).

Testing Water for Lead

Starting in February 2017, the Oregon Youth Authority began testing the water outlets at all of our facilities for lead and copper. Lead can be harmful to people’s health, and we wanted to make sure all youth, staff, contractors, volunteers, and visitors are safe and healthy.

At MacLaren, initial tests found 107 outlets with levels of lead and seven outlets with levels of copper that were above the level where we take immediate action. We immediately took all of these outlets out of use for drinking and cooking. We are working to replace and re-test all of these outlets.
