Newberg Old Fashioned Festival Parade

On Saturday, July 30th, 2016, over 40 colleagues, friends, extended families and employees came together to walk in the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival Parade with Chehalem Youth & Family Services. It was wonderful to have so many friends join us in the parade and the crowd cheering us on! 

We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to support us during a busy festival weekend. As we walked side by side down the streets holding signs that read “CYFS serving the most vulnerable in our community,” and “It takes an entire community to raise up young men and women,” we had a sense of pride and felt privileged to be a part of such a wonderful community of supporters.

Again, thank you for walking with us and we hope you’ll join us again for next year’s parade!

A Special Thank You!

We want to thank all the attendees, volunteers, donors and sponsors from the bottom of our hearts for their participation and generous support of the 6th Annual Chehalem Youth & Family Services (CYFS) Rubies & Roses Benefit Ball held on June 4, 2016! We are grateful to everyone who came together to make this year’s event so amazing! With all the contributions, we are thankful and happy to report that we’ve reached an unofficial Benefit Ball total of $87,098, our most highly attended and successful event in its history!

Breanna's Art Elements Win

For Decembers Art Walk 2015, Art Elements Gallery on 1st Street, sponsored a "selfie" event. The challenge was to put down your cell phone and "draw" a selfie. As we all know, we are so much more than the wrapping of our facial look. We are our music, our art, our athletic abilities and so much more.

The Residential Services kids took on the challenge and their best expressive art work was entered into the ages 13-16 drawing group. Breanna's "Celestial Creation" was entered because it expressed her willingness to wildly experiment, to take risks even when they may not work out or "dry" as hoped for and her enthusiasm.

Breanna won a $200.00 basket of art supplies from Art Elements Gallery and The Art Group TAG added all of the supplies which Breanna has used in her art experiment. Way to go to all of the participants!!
