VOA Oregon's Family Relief Nursery is a prevention/intervention program that helps to stop the cycle of child abuse & neglect while also providing development assessments and a therapeutic nursery/preschool environment for children ages six weeks through five years. The program provides skills training, respite care, and home visits to assist families in re-establishing a safe, caring home environment.

The loving touch of a well-trained, certified therapy pet is very therapeutic for our clients. Interacting with a therapy pet can stimulate a client’s sense of touch, calm a client who is feeling agitated, and generally promote a sense of well-being. Our children love getting to see and play with various animals.

If you are trained in pet therapy, we invite you to visit our clients and faciliate safe human and animal contact. Your support is so appreciated!
