At the VOA Oregon Family Relief Nursery, we strive to walk with children and families, support their nurturing relationships and strengthen the family unit so that we highlight and increase their stability and resilience. We have waitlists for children and families who need our services. Your support will enable us to grow, serve more clients, enhance our program offerings, and maximize our impact. Please join us by helping us soar!
Evidence-based research has shown that reducing the stresses of childcare for already fragile families, reduces the instances of child neglect and abuse. The Family Relief Nursery (FRN) model is one that is holistic and positive in its approach working with both children and parents. Because of the high need for these services in the Portland-metro area, we have waitlists for children and families who need our services. We want to grow our program to meet the needs of our community.
We are looking to expand our services to more families and in the types of services we offer, including the addition of a mental health counselor. Your support will enable us to grow, server more clients, enhance our program offerings, and maximize our impact on reducing child abuse and other parental stress-related outcomes. The opportunity to raise awareness through this project also helps to address this issue.
The goal of our Family Relief Nursery (FRN) is to reduce instances of child neglect and abuse. The opportunity to provide client-centered therapies that engage the whole family unit means that we are changing the outcomes for children who get to have a happy childhood. If we are able to break a cycle of abuse and neglect, the future will be brighter.
