Oregon

Formed in a merger in 2011, Youth Villages Oregon continues a heritage of helping children and families in the state, reaching as far back as 1859 through The Christie School. With a focus on community-based services, Youth Villages Oregon is committed to providing the most effective and cost-efficient treatment options to help build successful lives for children with emotional and behavioral issues, their families and youth aging out of state custody.

Local Leadership

Andrew Grover

Andrew Grover

Executive Director, Oregon

Andrew Grover began his pursuit of excellence in social services as a child. Having come from a troubled home he saw life on the street, in residential programs, foster care, and juvenile corrections. At an early age he decided to dedicate his career to helping other kids like himself. That journey began working directly with troubled youth and families in residential and in-home settings.
