Oregon Topics: Children and Families
Oregon families face new opportunities and challenges while trying to keep up with accelerating change in society. More government and nonprofit programs exist to help strengthen communication between parents, children, and the larger society. At the same time, penalties for criminal behavior—both in terms of child abuse and youth offenders—have become stricter.
This section includes resources to help families with everything from food programs to child support to parent training.
