Whether you’re a fan of theater, live music, craft beer, funky foods or being outside, Portland has something for you.  The city has a great vibe for food carts, street festivals, visual and performing art with an array of specialty shops.

  • Home to a sprawling urban forest, dozens of verdant public parks, gorgeous gardens and a sparkling river running through the middle of the city, there’s never a shortage of ways to explore Portland’s outdoors. Whether you’re a fan of flowers, tranquil gardens, urban hikes or just looking to get some fresh air, Portland has something for every kind of outdoor enthusiast covered.
  • Get out of the city to explore! From zip lines to whitewater rafting and horseback riding to pioneer history, or strolling on the Oregon Coast, these attractions are worth the (short) trips outside Portland.
  • Choose from multiple cities to explore, each with their own unique landscapes and history; grab a tent and experience some of the best camping in the country; or settle in to a pint of Oregon-made craft beer at a nearby brewery.

If you are passionate about providing strength-based mental health services for children, youth and their family, we would love to hear from you!
