Warm Springs Community Visioning Meeting Report

July 18th, 2019

Warm Springs Nation, Oregon

On a summer evening in 2019, a group of over 40 Warm Springs community members gathered at the Agency Longhouse to participate in a visioning meeting regarding health and well-being factors in the community. This meeting was led by members of the JeffCo Connects Community Network and the Native Aspirations Coalition.  Using a combination of brainstorming and prioritization processes called nominal group technique, each facilitated table worked to identify supports, challenges, and solutions to health and well-being issues in Warm Springs.  The following is an ordered compilation of priorities identified, as well as themes that surfaced in the small groups.  These ideas will be triangulated and considered as local and county-wide priorities, the priorities identified by the network will help to focus efforts over the next 5 years.
