Each month, we serve approximately 115 families in our Therapeutic Early Childhood Program (TECP). The children spend their time in the TECP delighting in a variety of activities, developing their social and emotional skills, being active, and learning. The role of a volunteer in the classroom is to play with the children, help them accomplish their goals, and be a friend. The children in the TECP range in age from two years- 6 years old.
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.
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.
