Portland’s Children Relief Nursery

The Children’s Relief Nursery in Portland started in a church basement and grew to a stand-alone center offering classes for children birth to age 4 who have social, emotional or language development problems resulting from abuse, neglect or poverty. Therapists also visit families at home and the nursery offers respite care for parents. In 2007, the nursery served 193 children from 177 families, most living below the poverty level. The nursery receives funding from a multitude of donors, including city taxpayers through the Children’s Investment Fund.
