At Morrison, we know that a little support can go a long way.
Throughout our 74 years of service, we have supported youth and families in overcoming stress and trauma to find new ways to thrive. We provide a wide variety of mental health, substance abuse, and foster care services to over 8,200 children and families each year in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Marion, Polk, Columbia, Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties, and we continue to grow.
Room to Thrive
The Rotary Club of Portland chose to support our growth and services by selecting Morrison as the recipient of a once-a-decade grant, Project 2020, to help fund our new Rotary Youth Center at Morrison – a project which will benefit the children and families of Morrison Child & Family Services for generations to come.
With year-round space to gather and recreate, the Rotary Youth Center at Morrison gives our youth, families, and therapists expanded space for treatment, training, physical education, recreation, and group meetings, allowing Morrison to expand our impact even further by combining mental and physical health treatment.
