It’s not easy being a teen in today’s fast-paced world, but they aren’t alone. With the invaluable support of the Walters Family Foundation, Ophelia’s Place empowers, educates, and supports youth to make healthy life choices. Its prevention-based holistic services teach teens critical thinking skills they’ll use when dealing with tough topics like Digital Decisions, Healthy Relationships, Sexual Harassment & Conflict Resolution, and Media & Body Image. It’s partnership with the Walters Family Foundation has allowed Ophelia’s Place to reach more than 1,800 youth in rural Oregon middle and high schools through classroom presentations to all youth, girls’ empowerment groups, parent education sessions, and school staff training. Thank you for making an investment in our teens, our communities, and their futures.
