Regional Leadership Teams

Goal: To organize 90by30 efforts across Lane County so that every person, neighborhood, group, and organization has a way to easily participate in efforts to end child abuse and neglect in Lane County

We are absolutely committed to taking on the challenge of prevention of child neglect and abuse all across Lane County. Our Organizing Committee worked hard in 2012 to decide on a way to organize our efforts to meet that goal. Our decision was to divide Lane County into six geographical areas, following the lines of school districts as much as possible. Our regions are West Lane, East Lane, South Lane, North Lane, Eugene-Metro, and Springfield-Area.
