The Dougy Center was founded in 1982 by nurse Beverly Chappell in tribute to Dougy Turno, a young boy who died of an inoperable brain tumor at age 13. The Dougy Center is widely regarded as an international leader in the field of childhood bereavement. In 35 years of service, The Dougy Center has provided support groups to over 35,000 children, teens, young adults, and their family members, and provided interventions to thousands of communities in response to tragedies such as the Umpqua Community College shootings, 2001 World Trade Center bombings, the 2010 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school shootings.

The Dougy Center has responded to over 17,000 information, crisis, intake, and referral requests; and nearly 4,000 people have been impacted by Dougy Center trainings in the community in 2015-16. This year alone, 1,906 children and families received free support services at one of the Dougy Center's three locations in Portland, Hillsboro, and Canby.
