VOA Oregon’s Family Relief Nursery (FRN) is a vital component of VOA Oregon’s service model. By meeting the needs of parents in crisis, where they are, we are ensuring healthy and loving childhoods. Our FRN has been in service since 1992, offering free services to families throughout the metro area. In the 26 years of our operation, we have averaged serving over 90 families each year—creating safe and nurturing spaces for children to play, learn, and be safe. Family Relief Nurseries help parents who may be overwhelmed by multiple stresses.

Matching Gift Status - $7,500

The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund will match gifts of $2,500, $1,000, and $5000 to FRN through April 30, 2019, up to $30,000.

About FRN

The average stay for our clients is between 12-18 months and we work with children from 6 weeks to 5 years, who meet our eligibility requirements. At FRN, parents have the opportunity to learn how to create safe and supportive home environments for their children.

Our facilities and staff offer respite care, developmentally appropriate classrooms, snacks and meals, parenting classes, and access to other community resources.

We provide transportation for families who need it, helping to reduce barriers to access and services.  

Help Us Soar!

Please join us by helping us soar! We have waitlists for our program and are looking to expand the services we offer, including the addition of a mental health counselor available to clients and parents. Your support will enable us to grow, serve more clients, enhance our program offerings, and maximize our impact on reducing child abuse and other parental stress-related outcomes.

Thank you for your support! Please contact us if you have any question or would like a tour of our FRN facilities.

We strive to walk with children and families, support their nurturing relationships and strengthen the family unit so that we highlight and increase their stability and resilience.
