      • Deborah,
        The nearest support group to North Bend is the one in Beaverton. We meet the first Wednesday evening of the month at the Beaverton city library. The full meeting starts at 5:30 with guest speakers, release info or intake info. The support part starts immediately following at 7:00 p.m.

  2. Those support meetings really sound good. And the intake orientation I bet would be very helpful. However its a long ways away. How can we get a meeting in the rest of the state other then in Portland area? And on top of that its during the week. Any weekend meetings? So others across the state can partake in this sessions?

    • Support group meetings are very helpful. What we have found is that a coordinator and location to hold meetings in other parts of the state are the largest challenge to overcome. We are open to more sites and volunteers.

  3. My husband is currently i
    at OSP, and this will be my 7 year old sons first Christmas without his dad. It has been a very rough year to say the least, but with Christmas coming I am finding myself struggling to provide him the emotional and material support he needs. I was wondering if there are any resources available to help fill the void of his father being gone? I also am trying to find resources for a support group or counselor that specialises with children of incarcerated parents. Thank you in advance for you time. Samantha Burnett

    • Samantha,

      This is some info from two of our board members.

      “Angel Tree is something that helps with Christmas for children. Have her contact the Chaplain at OSP.” “Angel Tree …. dad can sign up for child to receive gifts.”

      “There was a young woman who had a website for children of incarcerated parents. I will look for it. Sesame Street has some resources too available through their website.”

      I have asked the other board members about info also. As it comes in I will forward it to you.

      While we do not have support groups for children we do for adults. If you are in the Beaverton, Salem, Eugene or Damascus area there is a group there that can help answer questions and give you insights based on their experience with a loved one incarcerated. We have a group starting in Baker City but do not have all their info available just yet. Most groups meet once a month and you can find more info on our website including numbers to call.
