Mission Statement

Albertina Kerr empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), mental health challenges, and other social barriers to lead self-determined lives and reach their full potential.


For more than 113 years, Albertina Kerr has helped vulnerable people in our community.

Albertina Kerr’s Children’s Mental Health Services provides outpatient and crisis mental health treatment to children of all ages in Oregon and Southwest Washington. As a result, children stabilize and gain the skills they need to stay safe, preserve relationships, and be successful at home and school.

Albertina Kerr provides a full range of residential and enrichment services to children and adults with IDD. We provide safe and supportive group homes in Multnomah, Washington, Clark, and Marion counties. We help adults with IDD achieve paid employment, become income-earning artists, and find meaningful ways to engage with the community.

Would you recommend Albertina Kerr Centers?

Albertina Kerr has over 800 volunteers in their organization. I have been volunteering for 4 years and it is the best non profit I have ever worked with. They are responsive and care about their clients - and - they ensure that any applications or queries are dealt with promptly and completely. I am proud to be a volunteer with Albertina Kerr and always recommend them to potential new volunteers.

Albertina Kerr volunteer coordination department does not respond to volunteer opportunities submitted here, nor do they respond to emails sent directly to them with attached completed volunteer applications, or do they even respond to phone calls saying that you would like to volunteer. I wonder if they actually do have a Volunteer Coordinator.
