We are guided by the simple yet crucial mission of building brighter futures with children and families. Our vision is to create safe communities where children are healthy and every family has the opportunity for success. Families get the support they need—when and where they need it. There is a focus on prevention and health; organizations and systems are connected in a synergistic sanctuary community that generates nonviolence, growth and change, democracy, emotional intelligence, social learning, open communication and social responsibility. Our investment in the future of each child means that the next generation of Oregonians will have the skills to contribute meaningfully through employment, community service and raising their own healthy families.
Bottom Line for Portland
Trillium’s residential programs impact the lives of roughly 4,000 families experiencing a mental health crisis. We also provide clinical care in nearly 100 public schools across Oregon. Through our anti-stigma advocacy campaign, we reach almost 1,050,000 people every week, with an estimate of quadrupling that number over the coming 12 months.
