SOASTC changes name to Kairos - Daily Courieir

Date: March 29, 2012

The Daily Courier. 

After 34 years, the Southern Oregon Adolescent Study and Treatment Center has decided to change its name. The former SOASTC, the region's only large-scale organization, aimed at helping chil­dren with serious mental health and behavioral disor­ders, Will now go by "Kairos," an ancient Greek word mean­ing the opportune moment when change becomes possible.


Kairos officials say the rea­son for the change is that "Southern Oregon" and "Ado­lescent" no longer accurately describe the organization, which now serves young adults from all over the state and occasionally from outside Ore­gon. The organization plans to open a program for young adults in Lane County within the next year.

In a newsletter, Kairos Chief Executive Officer Bob Lieberman wrote, "We arrived at the name with input from our Board, leadership; and Development Advisory Group, and believe the name itself, along with our mission and val­ues, will help guide us in our work each moment of each day."
