Santiam Community Welcomes Service Integration Teams (SIT) to the Community

Santiam SIT will serve as a safety net by facilitating resources and information for individuals and families. The program is designed to coordinate community providers and services to identify needs, find solutions, and avoid duplication of services. We are actively seeking our partners for the Santiam SIT to include local school districts, law enforcement, local and state governments, faith communities, businesses, non-profits, early childhood providers, community volunteers, and other interested parties. Together, we can share resources and work efficiently and effectively to benefit those most in need in our community.

North Santiam School District, Santiam Canyon School District and Cascade School District are part of the Santiam Service Integration's geographical service area.

What is Service Integration?

The purpose of the Service Integration Program is to facilitate collaboration among community partners to provide coordinated resources and information for individuals and families. These are agency and community partners expediting solutions by matching resources to clearly defined needs, while avoiding duplication of services.

Service Integration is a partnership between Santiam Hospital, school district, faith groups, non-profits, social service agencies, local clubs, government agencies, businesses, and community members. The Service Integration Teams will meet monthly to network, share resources, discuss local needs, and find solutions. Each team will be unique to its community.
