The Family Nurturing Center, one of 23 Relief Nurseries in Oregon, is an innovative and positive response to this crisis. By wrapping an array of services around high-risk families with children birth to five years, the Family Nurturing Center is keeping children safe and families together. Relief Nursery families are succeeding.
Documented outcomes show:
- Increased family protective factors, and decreased family risk factors
- Reduced time children spend in foster care
- Increased positive parent-child interaction
- Increased participant employment rates
- And most significantly — 99 percent of families have no further involvement in child welfare
