A Special Message from One of Our Major Sponsors

AllCare Health LogoAllCare Health is pleased to sponsor Rogue Winterfest and its annual fundraiser to help improve healthcare in Josephine County. This year’s festival supports funding for mental and behavioral health services and increased program offerings in Josephine County, an initiative AllCare Health fully embraces.

Especially during the holiday season, when emotions can run high as people remember those they’ve loved and lost, mental health programs are valuable to people who find themselves feeling fragile, depressed, or unable to cope with the realities of loss or loneliness. It’s crucial to have resources available for people seeking help. That’s why AllCare Health invests in mental and behavioral health programs in communities throughout Southern Oregon.

AllCare Health emphasizes the importance of a whole-person approach to healthcare, treating underlying conditions that may be affecting overall health and wellness. All Oregonians should have access to high-quality healthcare to improve mental and emotional health so they can get back to being themselves.

We’re committed to improving mental health services in Southern Oregon and to providing healthcare that works for our community. That’s why every year we choose to support Rogue Winterfest. We wish every Southern Oregonian a safe and happy holiday season.”

And let’s not forget the unsurpassed Evergreen Federal Bank’s SOUTHERN OREGON ADVENTURE!

Little Girl Catching a Prize

Local artists and Bear Hotel staff have transformed the hotel into a Southern Oregon Winter Adventure with snowcapped towering redwoods trees, canyons with waterfalls, robust vineyards, a covered bridge, a sea cave, panoramic coastal views, and of course, Crater Lake. It’s a true Southern Oregon Adventure.

And, finally, the reason we present the Rogue Winterfest to our community …

Family Solutions Girls Home Residents Placing Hands on Table in an Act of Solidarity and Support

The Festival is a collaborative fundraiser organized by three mental health agencies in Josephine County: Family Solutions, Kairos, and Options for Southern Oregon. We are not only raising funds to help these agencies, but we are also dedicated to presenting a wonderful community event. Thank you again for supporting our efforts so we can raise awareness about the need for these vital services in Josephine County. Our focus is on providing those with mental health issues the help they need to live a productive and happy life. With your contributions, we can make a difference.

Start the holiday season off at Rogue Winterfest. See you soon!

Happy Holidays from the staff and board members of Family Solutions, Kairos, and Options for Southern Oregon.
