Relief Nursery is a local, nonprofit child abuse and neglect prevention agency. We serve approximately 1000 multi-stressed, low-income local families with children under age 6 each year, at no cost to them. Many families come to Relief Nursery already involved with child services. After receiving our comprehensive, individualized support, 97% of those families require no further intervention from child services.
Relief Nursery provides a variety of programs to strengthen families and keep children safe, including therapeutic preschool, parent education, recovery support, home visiting and counseling. We also provide meals, clothing closet, transportation and other support services to break down barriers that would otherwise prevent families from utilizing our services.
We couldn't do all this without the unwavering support of our community partners like the Eugene Marathon.
