Mid-Valley Parenting

Family Link

The Family Link Network is made up of partners including Family Building Blocks, Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency, Oregon Child Development Coalition, Willamette ESD, Polk County Public Health and other in home service agencies in the Family Link Visiting Network.

This Network is a group that has been working together since October 2013 to strengthen families in the Polk County community. Each agency involved in the group offers a type of in home service to families. These services can range from educational curriculums to complex medical monitoring and serve families prenatally through age 5 and up.

The main goal of the Family Link is to improve the overall health of the community and improve kindergarten readiness by increasing in-home service coverage for Polk County families.

The group has developed a Universal Referral Tool to be used by any provider or community member wishing to refer a child or family to in home services. This referral form is one page in length and will be used by the group to aid in placing families with the in home service that best fits each family’s needs.

Please fax completed and signed Family Link Referral forms and Authorizations to Release Information forms to fax# 1-888-972-6857.  If you have questions about a referral or need to contact the Family Link Coordinator, please call 503-990-7431 ext.122.
