Notice! Domestic Violence and Behavioral Health Informational Bulletin

THE KLAMATH TRIBES

Domestic Violence Services:

During the COVID-19 Health Emergency, subsequent stay-at-home order in Oregon and the closing of The Klamath Tribes Administration Offices, services for the The Klamath Tribes’ Healing Winds Program will coordinate with Marta’s House/Klamath Crisis Center.  The Klamath Crisis Center has a 24 hour crisis-line (541) 884-0390.  If the caller identifies as Native or requests services from a Tribal Advocate, then the on-call Tribal Advocate will be connected with the caller.

The Healing Winds Advocate will work to support and connect the caller to Tribal services or other agencies and programs that are providing services during this time of need.  Since each situation is different each response is different. The Klamath Tribes and Healing Winds is committed to serving domestic violence victims during this health crisis and will continue to be available to Tribal Members in need of essential services.
