     Welcome to the TTFRC Resource Guide 2007-2008!

As many of you know, there is a shortage of resources available to
those living on the east side of Washington County. The purpose of
the TTFRC Resource Guide is to provide a tool for those who work
closely with children, youth, and families in the Tigard and Tualatin
area. It contains information about the most commonly needed
services and how to access them.

This guide is not a comprehensive guide of services and agencies in
Washington County. The TTFRC Resource Guide focuses on basic
needs and is designed to help families determine and access the
agencies that are nearest to them. TTFRC does have information
about accessing a variety of other services. Please do not hesitate to
call us for information about services that are not included in this
guide. Also, please see page 17 for some other great places to get
social service information and referral.

Special thanks go to Flor Chuc, TTFRC’s Receptionist, as well as our
wonderful volunteers Maricarmen Michelson and Robbie Rice for
making multiple calls to ensure the accuracy of our information,
entering data and editing the guide and to Peggy West for editing the
final version. Also, a big “thank you” to each of you who are
working hard to serve and help families in our schools and in our
community. We hope that this guide will be of help to you!


Sincerely,




Catherine West

Does the family have insurance (Oregon Health Plan or other)?

    If yes, discuss their plan with them and inquire about prescription
     coverage.

    If no, ask if they have applied for OHP. For eligibility and coverage
     questions, contact OHP at 1-800-359-9517.

If the family is not eligible for OHP, has no other insurance, and needs to fill
an emergency prescription, TTFRC is usually able to pay for a portion of
the prescription (as long as funds are available) on a one time, emergency
basis.

*TTFRC has information about pharmaceutical companies and
manufacturers who offer charitable programs to low-income adults and
