About Family Recovery Support

In partnership with The Miracles Club, VOA Oregon's Family Recovery Support provides culturally responsive, trauma informed services to parents in recovery from addiction and their families. Our services are designed to assist families to stay together and stay well as they cope with the challenges of early recovery. All of our services are voluntary and free of charge!

Our drop-in center provides a safe place for families to seek resources or just hang out. We serve meals every day, have computers and free wifi, have a clothing pantry on site, and offer an array of supportive programming. We provide childcare, mental health treatment, self-help groups, employment and housing assistance, and more. Our services and staff offer a well-rounded approach to keep families on their feet and stay strong.
