How do I sign up for a group?

To sign up for a group, call our mainline at 503.775.5683 and a Dougy Center Family Services Coordinator will discuss placement in a group, confirm a start date, and send any additional necessary information to you.

How long before we can start attending a group?

We aim for you and your family to get started as quickly as possible. If there is a waitlist for your group, we do our best to accommodate families’ needs as much as possible. The more flexible your schedule, the quicker we can get you started.

How do I choose a group?

We strongly encourage parents and caregivers to allow your child(ren) or teen(s) to decide if they would like to join a group before signing up. To find out more about the groups we offer, click the button below.
