Early Intervention

At Volunteers of America, we strive to help families and children at the first sign of trouble. Our family preservation programs help strengthen families by teaching parenting skills, coping techniques, connecting families to a range for services and providing respite. We also provide delinquency prevention programs for youth who show early signs of problem behaviors. 

Featured Program: Family Relief Nursery

The primary goal of the Volunteers of America Oregon Family Relief Nursery is to interrupt the intergenerational cycle of child abuse and neglect and to assist parents in retaining their children in their own homes in a safe, supportive environment. Family Relief Nursery is a prevention/early intervention program designed to strengthen fragile families at serious risk of abusing or neglecting their children or of permanently losing custody of their children. The nursery offers a holistic, positive intervention for both children and parents. It provides therapeutic preschool/respite care services, intensive parent training, home visits, and additional family support services.
