On Wednesday, March 4th, 2020, Morrison will host our 7th Annual Silver Linings luncheon in the Governor Ballroom at the Historic Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland. More than 300 of our city’s most prominent business and community leaders will gather to celebrate the programs and services that Morrison Child and Family Services provides.
Silver Linings is an opportunity to increase public awareness of Morrison’s community impact. It is also a chance to visit our program gallery and meet the staff who work directly with the children and families we so proudly serve.
This year, we are excited to present Jelani Memory as our Keynote Speaker. Jelani is an African American entrepreneur, thinker, and constant learner. He co-founded tech startup Circle Media Inc. and book publisher, A Kids Book About. He was born and raised in Portland Oregon, where he still lives with his wife and six kids.

Morrison Child and Family Services is one of the oldest and largest community-based mental health and substance abuse organizations in the state of Oregon. Since 1947, we have provided specialized services to help children, from birth through age 21, and their families recovering from adversity and trauma. Our programs currently serve youth and families in the Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Columbia, Linn, Benton, Lincoln, Marion, and Polk counties. Other youth come to us from all over the state of Oregon.
At Morrison, we believe in a bright future for every child. Our programs recognize and respect cultural differences and support the growth of children to enhance their schooling and future, resulting in healthier, safer communities. By partnering with the community, we support over 8,200 children, teens and families per year
