Caring for Children in Crisis


Help children and adolescents overcome behavioral health challenges by purchasing supplies for our Child and Adolescent Psychology Unit, including yoga mats and art supplies.  Children experiencing a mental health crisis need the safe, age-appropriate program offered at Providence Willamette Falls. Your support ensures that children and teens receive the help they need.

Charity care

No child should be denied help because they are uninsured or under-insured. Donor support ensures the cost of care is not a barrier for families seeking help for their child.

Art Therapy

The art therapy program focuses on stabilizing children and reducing their anxiety. Art helps them make connections to their thoughts and feelings. For young children, art therapy helps them express feelings they might not understand or be able to articulate.

Better Outcomes thru Bridges

This program serves unhoused Clackamas County CAPU patients and their families access support and services they need within the community.
