Juliette’s House was created in 1997 by school counselors, child advocates, pediatricians, mental health professionals, law enforcement, child protective service workers, and other concerned citizens who wanted to create a child-focused facility for compassionate child abuse assessment. The whole community built Juliette’s House, and the whole community continues to support, maintain and enrich it.
Juliette’s House is an independent non-profit, medically-based child abuse intervention center recognized as a compassionate response to child abuse in Yamhill, Polk and Tillamook Counties. A dynamic, grassroots, community-wide effort led by local business men and women, community movers and shakers, and dedicated volunteers has made the center a reality.
Their work has resulted in a facility designed to be both functional and child-friendly, visible to the community yet sensitive to the need for client privacy, and capable of accommodating growth and expanding need.
