Here are the types of programs we fund.
Home visiting programs work with families who are at-risk for adverse childhood experiences, including child maltreatment. Services begin prenatally or right after the birth of a baby. Home visits are individualized to address the unique service and cultural needs of each family. The program helps families build strong bonds between parents and children, teaches parents what to expect of their children at different ages, and also models positive parenting behavior.
Relief nurseries provides a unique array of comprehensive family support services that are easily accessible to low-income parents with children up to six years of age. From crisis response, to therapeutic classrooms, to alcohol and drug recovery support, Relief Nursery staff work to keep children in our Oregon safe from abuse and neglect.
Parenting education and family support programs help parents strengthen parenting skills, coaches parents on stress management, and provides information on healthy child development through peer-to-peer mentoring, leadership training, and a support hotline. Parenting support and family-centered activities allows parents/caregivers to share their challenges and receive training on how to positively interact with their children. Education classes and activities are community-based and delivered locally for at-risk children and families, making it more accessible to parents seeking support.
