What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since 1968, Parrott Creek has been rebuilding the lives of highly traumatized children and families involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. Our programs range from early interventions and community support through to outpatient treatment and intensive residential services. The children and families we support are some of the most vulnerable in our communities: all come from impoverished backgrounds with high levels of trauma, abuse and Adverse Childhood Experiences, many are challenged by substance misuse, houselessness and most have histories of poor engagement in healthcare systems. Disproportionately, these children and families come from communities of color and are therefore further impacted by systemic and/or overt racism and inequality. Our approach is to address the various social, economic and health factors that cause trauma to individuals and communities and that lead to reduced access to resources, supports and opportunities.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Ranch (long-term residential treatment program)

The Ranch is a long term residential treatment program for adolescent boys with a focus on developing sustainable and prosocial behaviors and skills that help them reach their full potential. The Ranch staff help youth develop life skills, accountability and personal regulation so that they can become contributing members of society.

Population(s) Served

Lifeguards is a community based program that provides assessment and outpatient treatment services for adolescents who exhibit sexually inappropriate behavior. Youth participate in individual, family and group therapy to provide a holistic approach to treatment and to prevent further offenses. With a priority of community safety Parrott Creek works with youth in the Lifeguards Program holding them accountable through victim and community restoration.

Population(s) Served

Steps to Active Recovery (STAR) is a community based program that works with parents who are involved with the Child Welfare system due to alcohol or drug abuse allegations. Staff connects clients to services that focus on drug and alcohol treatment, and parenting skills.

Population(s) Served

New Era House, our newest program in partnership with the Oregon Department of Human Services, provides intensive residential support to youth in the Child Welfare system –particularly those who have been away from their families for years and have histories of failed placements. We provide a safe, stable community, free from harm, allowing them to learn skills to transition into their next home or placement. Family therapy is offered when applicable to keep youth connected with their loved ones and increase the likelihood of success.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is to become a regional center of excellence in service to children, youth and families. Our primary goals over the next three years are to:
Provide a campus suitable to the services we provide - now and well in to the future
Create a culture of excellence with a well-trained, well-resourced staff and board
Provide diversified and comprehensive clinical and early-intervention services to meet our community’s evolving needs
Ensure partnerships of trust within the juvenile justice, child welfare and children’s services sectors, as well as with communities of color

Every year, we help over 800 children and families to overcome trauma and believe in their potential to succeed. Our mission is to help our participants identify strengths and develop skills that build stronger families and safer communities. We build effective partnerships to align services, maximize resources and provide an equitable and inclusive continuum of care for our participants. At its heart, we believe our children and families are smart, capable and doing the best they can with the resources they have available to them. Our job is to help them reach their full potential.

Our services span from early interventions and community support through to outpatient treatment and intensive residential programs. Our Residential Treatment Programs benefit boys ages 13-18, located in Clackamas County and serving youth in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. Programs include:
· The Ranch, long-term residential treatment that lasts typically seven to nine months, helps boys involved in the juvenile justice system understand the impacts of their behaviors, learn personal regulation and develop the life skills needed to succeed in school, at home, and in society.
· New Era House, a new program in partnership with Oregon Department of Human Services, that provides residential treatment for youth in the Child Welfare system. The program helps alleviate the need for Oregon to place youth out of state and to better nurture and care for them close to home. This program works with highly traumatized youth, those with high Adverse Childhood Experience scores, as well as treating and supporting youth with sexually inappropriate behaviors.

Our community based programs include:
· Lifeguards: provides assessment and outpatient treatment services for adolescents with sexually harming behaviors and who have been adjudicated.
· Steps to Active Recovery (STAR): works with parents who are involved with the Child Welfare system due to alcohol or drug abuse allegations. Our peer support workers connect clients to services that focus on substance use treatment and parenting skills.

In 2020, we developed three new partnerships that will support a broader, more equitable and longer lasting impact for youth and families and our communities:

We entered into a strategic partnership with True Housing (formerly The Inn Home) to align our services along a robust continuum of care. True Housing, like Parrott Creek, has a 50+ year history of providing services in Oregon. Under our management, we will jointly provide:
-Women and Mother's Program
-Residential and Independent Living Programs
-Youth Homeless Demonstration Program

Using a collective impact model, Safe Kids Clackamas is a coalition of community organizations that have come together to ensure the critical services that deliver the safety, permanency and well-being of children in our community are available and accessible whenever needed. These services include trauma-informed intervention in cases of child abuse and family and intimate partner violence. The founding members of the coalition are: Clackamas Women’s Services, Northwest Family Services, The Children’s Center, CASA of Clackamas County and Parrott Creek.

We are collaborating with Friends of Tryon Creek (FOTC) on our new Cultural Environmental Education & Trauma Healing Project. The program combines environmental education that honors the culture of native land stewardship with the healing power of the natural world through indigenous practices.

Parrott Creek has been serving youth and families for over 50 years and, during that time, has developed a strong grounding and expertise in the provision of acute programs and services for highly traumatized children and adults. Parrott Creek also ensures its programs remain current by researching emerging best-practices in treatment and support methodologies. We are active members of the Oregon Alliance of Children’s Programs, the Restorative Justice Coalition of Oregon, the Safe Kids Coalition of Clackamas County and Oregon City Together, as well as many other local, community-based forums and working groups. The bulk of our programs and services have to be licensed by state agencies, which requires that we demonstrate quality assurance standards on an ongoing basis through both planned and unannounced inspections and audits. As of 2020 our behavioral health services will also be accredited by the Joint Commission, a national body that accredits more than 22,000 health and social care organizations and programs across America.

Since 1968, we have served more than 25,000 youth and families and currently serve 800 families per year in Oregon. Parrott Creek is effective, with 88% of youth staying out of the juvenile system following treatment. Additionally, we are recognized as a leader in our field: we are highly regarded by the Oregon Youth Authority and Clackamas County Juvenile Department, and we achieve high ratings on our annual Behavioral Rehabilitative Services (BRS) reviews. For three years in a row, an independent evaluation team from Oregon juvenile justice agencies has rated our residential treatment program "highly effective" using the evidence-based Correctional Program Checklist (CPC). Only 7% of programs nationally are rated at this level. We expect to continue being a highly effective alternative to juvenile detention or incarceration.
