Each month our outreach team serves approximately 75 families a month in respite care and with other services. We're looking for volunteers to play with the children, facilitate arts and crafts activities, story times, outdoor play, and much more, as well as helping with the general classroom operations. Volunteers can expect to work with children ages 6 months- 6 years, and have a great time meeting new children and families.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Relief Nursery is to prevent the cycle of child abuse and neglect by early intervention that focuses on building successful and resilient children, strengthening parents and preserving families.

Description

The Relief Nursery is a non-profit program proven to strengthen high-risk families and keep their vulnerable young children safe and healthy. Nationally recognized, the Relief Nursery stops the cycle of child abuse and neglect with its blend of therapeutic early childhood services and comprehensive family support, including alcohol & drug recovery support services.

We serve low-income multi-stressed families with young children between birth and six years of age, who are at-risk for child abuse and neglect. Relief Nursery programs are an effective model of child protection and family preservation services that build on the belief that most children are best served when they remain with their families.
