Relief Nursery is a local child abuse and neglect prevention agency. We serve approx. 1,000 at-risk, low-income families in the Eugene and Springfield area each year, at no cost to them. Of those, 97% are never involved in another DHS case again which is an astonishing number given the norm!
We accomplish this by providing a variety of programs from counseling, to our therapeutic preschool, to parenting educations classes, just to name a few. We also provide meals, clothing, transportation and other necessities to break down the barriers that would otherwise prevent families from utilizing our services.
