Mental Health & Social Services
HOOTS (Helping Out Our Teens in Schools), a community partner that provides mobile crisis response support to 4J and other high schools, will offer mental health support by phone for high school students, families and staff while schools are closed. Staff are able to provide short-term counseling, resource referrals, and Oregon Health Plan signup. Available weekdays 9 a.m.–4 p.m. at 541-246-2342.
The White Bird Crisis Line will continue to be accessible 24/7 by phone at 541-687-4000.
Looking Glass Community Services – Station 7 continues to provide largely the same services we provided previous to Covid-19, we are just screening clients upon entry by taking temperature and assessing for Covid-19 symptoms and then we are practicing CDC and HUD recommended guidelines within shelter as far as social distancing and sanitizing goes. We are able to take youth 11-21 at Station 7 but youth 18+ have to be in their own room (or in a room with only other 18+) and we have to prioritize 11-17 so we take those 18+ stays on a night by night basis depending on our room availability. We also continue to operate the 24/7 crisis phone and texting line for the agency.
15th Night will also be continuing to offer support and resources for unhoused youth and those working with them via phone and text at 541-246-4046. Many other social services in the area are also working on providing phone or virtual services. You may also contact our Sheldon Community Responder Trista Neuman. A Sheldon Community Responder is a volunteer that responds to “alerts” sent by the 15th Night Coordinator at Sheldon High School for needs specific to Sheldon High School students that have not been met by internal school resources. These type of alerts would be for items such as clothing, shoes, small household items, food or bedding. A Sheldon High School Community Responder would receive a text message indicating a need. If the Responder can provide the need, they respond to the text message and work with the Sheldon High School Coordinator to secure and deliver the item. Please contact Trista Neuman at Neuman_t@4j.lane.edu.
