Dr. Rivera to evaluate Oregon Family Connections Program

Dr. Marny Rivera, Justice Center faculty, will serve as the evaluator for the Family Connections program funded by a Family Connection Discretionary Grant that was recently awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children & Families . The award was made to the drug treatment provider, OnTrack, Inc., located in Jackson County, Oregon. The funding is intended to help children at risk of entering foster care to reconnect with their families by providing a number of services, including residential family drug treatment.
