Every day, Albertina Kerr helps children, adults and families in Oregon who face mental health challenges and developmental disabilities, empowering them to lead fuller, self-determined lives.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Oregon, there are more than 10,000 reported cases of child abuse and neglect every year. At any given time, there is a waiting list for our group home services for adults living with developmental disabilities -- people whose families can no longer provide care for them in their family homes. Albertina Kerr provides critical services to children, families and adults in crisis due to mental health challenges or developmental disabilities.
How will this project solve this problem?
We offer a wide range of intensive psychiatric services for children and support for their families, creating possibilities for a healthy, productive life for each child. We work with children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Potential Long Term Impact
Children, families and adults served by Albertina Kerr are empowered to lead fuller, self-determined lives. Possibilities are created where none existed before. Families find hope and our community, right here in Oregon, is strengthened.
