Today’s youth are facing an epidemic of epic proportions and the traditional response of the past is not working to stop or even slow down the problem. In fact, the youth are getting worse at an alarming rate and something needs to be done immediately to stop the crisis! Elrod Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reversing the current trend facing the youth of our society today. We offer a variety of services where artistic expression, play, and therapeutic intervention converge into one glorious mission…to love and heal every child and adolescent, one individual at a time!
South Willamette Valley Honor Flight is a member of the national Honor Flight Network. We are a non-profit organization and raise money to take our senior veterans to Washington, D.C., free of charge, to visit their Memorials and receive the “Thank You” for serving our country that most never received when they came home. We give priority to World War II veterans and terminally ill veterans from any conflict, then Korean War veterans, and then Vietnam War veterans. Average cost per veteran to go on their Honor Flight from this area is nearly $1,000.
