You Matter to Klamath Coalition Chair
We believe that suicide is everybody’s business and are proud to collaborate with over 25 local agencies and organizations to bring suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention education and services to Klamath County. This multi-agency coalition is dedicated to eliminating suicide in Klamath County through education, awareness, and community training on the warning signs and available resources. We know that talking about suicide opens communication about a topic that is too often kept a secret.
Foster Plus Partner Agency
Foster Plus is an effort of 13 social service agencies collaborating to connect kids in need with the support and stability of committed, caring foster families. Foster Plus agencies help kids, teens and young adults who need extra support by connecting them with care that’s a step up from traditional foster care. When you foster through your local Foster Plus agency, you’ll be a bridge for a kid in need, providing care and support at a critical moment in their life journey and guiding them toward a healthier future. You can also become a Relief Parent, supporting foster kids and families by providing care just a day or two at a time. The need in Oregon is great-and you’ll have the support you need to make this commitment. Learn more at: https://fosterplus.org/
