Youth ERA focuses on direct service, training, and advocacy for youth and young adults. These are the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
Youth ERA currently has five drop in centers: Clackamas, Coos, Salem and Medford Drop.
Youth ERA also provides opportunities for training and leadership for youth and young adults. Opportunities include Youth and Young Adult Engagement Advisory (YYEA). This statewide group of young adults advocates for the needs of young people who struggle with mental health and addiction challenges.
A primary component to the wellness of a young person is their connection to family members. Often, youth in child-serving systems are separated from their families. They also may not know about their extended family. Family Search and Engagement (FSE) is a unique service that helps individuals:
Catholic Community Services has provided FSE services for OHA since 2015.
Any individual or their guardian can contact Catholic Community Services for FSE services.
FSE searches for members throughout the country in many ways. Searches may include extensive family mapping, genealogy services and DNA testing.
After identifying relatives, FSE staff uses flexible spending funds to help youth to identify activities to enhance connection.
Engaging family members has been shown to improve the total wellness of youths. Identified family members often become long-term natural supports; some even become placement options.
These homes are for young adults (17.5 to 25 years old) who experience complex behavioral health challenges. The homes focus on helping residents develop the skills they need for successful transition into adulthood, and provide 24-hour supervision and support.
Services include but are not limited to:
There are seven homes, located in Albany, Eugene, Grants Pass, Pendleton, Portland, Salem and Tigard.
