Faith V. Love

A life long Portland resident, Faith V. Love began working with at risk youth in high school as a peer counselor and volunteer tutor.  She has worked with the highest risk youth since 1984 when she became an alternative school counselor in North Portland where she worked with initial wave of gang-involved youth and others for several years.

After working for Job Corps and continuing to volunteer for youth service agencies, Ms. Love was hired as a Transition Specialist with the Oregon Youth Authority’s (OYA) Office of Minority Services (OMS).  After five years with OMS, Love was promoted to a supervisory position in OYA’s Parole/Probation office in Multnomah County.

As part of OYA’s commitment to Wraparound Oregon, Love has spent the last year on assignment to Wraparound Oregon’s pilot in Multnomah County.  Love will continue to work as a school age family team Facilitator and Juvenile Justice Specialist for Wraparound over the next year.  Along with others from collaborating agencies, Love is committed to implementation of the process as planned under the Governor’s Statewide Wraparound Initiative and Executive Order.
