MISSION STATEMENTMountainStar Family Relief Nursery's mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect through community support and therapeutic services that help vulnerable children and families succeed. We work directly with Central Oregon families who are living in crisis. Parents struggling with poverty, homelessness, mental illness, drug/alcohol dependence, domestic violence, and more come to us voluntarily for help. We provide crisis intervention, parent coaching, home visits, basic supplies and more, as well as therapeutic classes for children six weeks to five years old. By partnering with parents, we help protect young children from abuse/neglect. In 2016 we successfully kept 99% of children in our program safe from confirmed cases of abuse/neglect and out of foster care!
YOUR DONATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCEThere are many ways you can get involved: Volunteer to hold and play with children in our therapeutic classes. Sign up as a Fairy GodParent to “adopt” a specific child and provide clothes, gifts, and other needs. Bring in diapers to any of our centers – we use A LOT of them serving 400+ babies and toddlers each year! Visit mtstar.org to learn about these opportunities and more.
