South Lane Spreading Roots of Empathy

3 Jan 2019
West Lane isn't the only region to receive recognition for its Roots of Empathy program. The Cottage Grove Sentinel recently covered the effort in South Lane. The article points out that students often use their observations about the baby's development to reflect on their own emotions.

So, it’s an opportunity for the kids to think how do you tell how a baby might be feeling?” As the article explains: Spending the year with a baby who started its class visits between two and three months old means second-graders can...

A Thank You from South Lane

19 Nov 2018
One of the greatest gifts of working with the community is hearing about the impact 90by30's efforts have on our neighbors.

My name is Travis and I am father to baby Juniper. My wife Amy and I welcomed her into the world on the fifth of November.

Community Support for the Welcome Baby Box

13 Feb 2018
The Welcome Baby Box project in South Lane got a generous boost recently from the Deacons Fund of the First Presbyterian Church in Cottage Grove, which made a $500 donation. The WBB also received the $1,500 Katherine Bisbee Fund Community Mission Grant from Presbytery of the Cascades. The grant funds programs that "strengthen the bonds of communities, neighborhoods and families" and this year focused on supporting victims of domestic violence and/or child abuse and neglect." Thank you!
