The Relief Nursery Model Is A Solution
We know that child abuse and neglect happens right here in Central Oregon. That fact is sobering, but it is reassuring to know that our therapeutic services (made possible by community support, donations, and grants) are making a real difference. That's been proven by an outside evaluator. Take a look at this report by Portland State University researchers on the Oregon Relief Nursery website to learn about these inspiring outcomes and more:

  • The risk of abuse and neglect is decreased by 70% within the first six months of a family participating in a relief nursery program
  • 95% of families in a relief nursery program for at least one year do not have further contact with the Department of Human Services or Child Welfare
