Located off of Green Acres Rd in Eugene, for the last 17 years, the Willamette Family Carlton House provides housing for up to 27 men. This site offers group and individual counseling along with mental health sessions, coping skills, smoking cessation and parenting classes for all residents. While children do not live on-site, they are able to visit and participate in Family Group. There is also a well-known piece of equipment called the "Carlton Bell", which gives the residents an opportunity to ring the bell and call the entire house into a group room for a meeting. This provides each individual an opportunity to ask for help and receive an open ear for listening.
Since purchasing and furnishing this location there have been remodels throughout the facility including updated and remodeled resident rooms, with 3 residential rooms on the bottom floor and 6 residential rooms on the top floor, each room consisting of 3 beds, a dresser for each resident and hooks for hanging jackets. This site houses 3 full-time and 1 part-time staff. Parenting Coaches, Mental Health Therapists and Peer Support work specific hours as needed and there is a front office staff member available to the residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Each year, in May, the residents, alumni and staff have a campout at Camp Lane where the men get the opportunity to reach out to those who have lived through similar experiences and help one another with problems they feel they’re facing. This highly regarded tradition is an opportunity for the men of Carlton House to stay connected and committed to recovery.
