Track: Educational Success
Commitment: Leading with Vision; Partnering with Purpose
North Star: Strategic Partnerships

Level of Learning: Learner

By providing an overview of the 3 to PhD collaborative and the initiative's focus on the development of safer, healthier, and better-educated communities, participants will learn about the history and coming together of Concordia University, Portland Public Schools, Trillium Family Services, Basics, and Kaiser Permanente to provide wraparound services and supports for a pre-k12 public school and the surrounding community.

As a social impact organization, Trillium will share its journey in visioning, trauma-informed thinking, and learning to act within community rather than upon community. Through conversations around schools as wellness hubs of the future; value-based practice and policy; and moving from nonprofit to social impact, workshop participants will discover the value of capacity-building through collaboration as well as understand the importance of value-based organizational policies and practices on sustaining gains in health, wellness, and education.

Learning Objectives

  • Collaborate to build capacity
  • Develop a vision focused on social impact
  • Understand trauma-informed impact
  • Establish value-based policy and practice

Kim Scott
Chief Executive Officer
Trillium Group

As the CEO of Trillium Group, Executive Director of Trillium Family Services Foundation Kim Scott is responsible for providing executive leadership for Trillium Group. He is responsible for direct supervision to the organization’s chief executive officers and providing leadership in the development of systems, strategies, and capital.

Over the past few years, Scott and his team at Trillium have adopted a trauma-informed lens to the work of the organization. Understanding the profound impact that trauma and stress have on individuals, families, organizations, communities, and all human systems has led Trillium down a path toward creating a network of trauma-informed community partners determined to change the conversation about people and problems from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What has happened to you?" Trillium’s “Keep Oregon Well” campaign was launched in 2015, with initiatives involving poverty, equity, inclusion, and safety in the pipeline for the coming year.

Jamie Vandergon
President
Trillium Family Services

Jamie Vandergon is the president of Trillium Family Services and provides leadership to its diverse array of community-based and residential programs across the state of Oregon. Over the past fifteen years, she has held progressively responsible leadership positions within the agency and continues to grow the size and scope of Trillium’s programs.

Vandergon is responsible for the clinical and financial aspects of all Trillium’s programs as well as being a voice for state-wide system transformation and integrated care for a healthier Oregon. She began her career working in community-based children’s mental health programs at Johns Hopkins Hospital and initially began working for Trillium Family Services in 2002 as a school-based child and family therapist. In 2007, she left Trillium briefly to spend some time working with Multnomah County as a family care coordinator on system-wide transformation efforts and the creation of a more robust system of care.
