Circle of Strength

It is one of the greatest compensations in life that no one can help another without helping themselves.

15th Annual Circle of Strength Women’s Fundraising Brunch

October 22, 2016  10am to noon
Riverside Golf and Country Club

When women get together, magic happens! Be part of this special group during the 15th Annual Circle of Strength Women’s Fundraising Brunch. The focus of this extraordinary event, and all the women involved, is to get struggling women and children the mental health care they need. All the money raised pays for counseling and psychiatric medication management for financially fragile women and their children. Please join us!

The need for mental health care looms large. Although there has been some progress with health care reform, significant barriers to accessing timely, meaningful care remain, particularly for lower-income women and children. A large number of people remain uninsured. For those with some access to plans, limitations on providers, huge deductibles, complex and confusing rules, and bureaucracy all stand in the way of getting help when needed.

But you can make a difference. Invite your friends and you can have fun while transforming lives!

We’re pleased that Marcy Cottrell Houle will join us this year as speaker! Marcy is a biologist and award-winning author of magazine articles and four books, including The Gift of Caring, a personal and practical journey through the hidden side of modern healthcare practices for aging Americans. Following the death of her parents, Houle sought to share the insights she learned to help others going through similar experiences, culminating in a partnership with Dr. Elizabeth Eckstrom, who practices geriatric medicine at OHSU. Their book recently won the Christopher Award, which recognizes creative efforts that value the human spirit.
