What is the objective of this project?

Why ask the community?

Yamhill County leaders are investing in a community-driven initiative to ‘establish a collaborative, integrated, community- based culture and system of support for the prevention of abuse and neglect and increase community capacity to support and improve the well-being of children and families.’ Together we will craft strategies and solutions to enhance prevention efforts, foster care placement and family support, accountability and communication.

Local decision-making and community action are key to the success of this effort. Communities in Yamhill County are in the best position to determine and act on, the needs of children, youth and families. Simply put, if we ask the right questions, we will know what is possible and have a greater collective understanding of critical problems which must be tackled. The power is in your participation and action.

We need you to answer these questions.

  1. What are the conditions that work for and against the healthy and positive development of children, youth and families in your community?

  2. How would you describe the ideal future for children, youth and families in your community?

  3. What are the barriers and challenges that are working against this ideal future?

  4. What would it take for your community to hold itself accountable for results?

What is the process?

In this phase, four gatherings will be conducted including the following community clusters;

Sheridan/Willamina/Grand Ronde Yamhill/Carlton

McMinnville/Amity/Dayton/Lafayette

Your input will shape the future.

Newberg/Dundee April 23rd 6-8 p.m. Newberg Providence Hospital; Sherwood Dundee Rooms

Upon completion of the community forums, information will be synthesized and reviewed by a select group of Yamhill County leaders. An Implementation Guide will then be crafted to assist you in putting your priorities into action. The completion of this first phase is scheduled no later than June 30, 2019.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to contribute to this important work toward community-based solutions.

“Unfortunately, we spend so much of our effort, attention, and resources on institutional reform that we usually ignore the inventive—and often more effective—efforts of citizens in associations as they grapple with the questions of neighborhood change. These efforts, however, fall largely under the radar of most researchers, marketers, governments, funders, and the media. Nonetheless, citizens are persistently at work creating new ways to meet those human needs resulting from the inherent limits of large institutions and systems.” Building Communities from the Inside Out, McKnight and Kretzmann
