Parenting Through the Seasons 2020

This year, Prevent Child Abuse Oregon (PCAO) is partnering with Healthy Families Oregon (HFO) and the Oregon Association of Relief Nurseries (OARN) to bring a few necessities to parents involved in either program across the state through a campaign, Parenting Through the Seasons. Healthy Families Oregon is a free and voluntary family support and parent education home visiting program serving about 2,500 families annually. HFO focuses on strengthening the parent-child relationship to assure healthy child growth and development. Relief Nurseries provide a unique array of comprehensive family support services that are easily accessible to low-income parents with children up to five years of age. Each of these programs has proven success in reducing children’s entry into foster care.

Donate essential items to families HERE from September 1- September 30th. 

Essential items include:
– Diapers
– Wipes
– Books
– Educational Play

The Parenting Through The Seasons campaign will include seasonal invitations to participate. Due to the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focusing on diapers, wipes, and activities for children sheltering in place. Having a child brings with it big changes and we know that all  families can use a little love and support from their communities. In these times of uncertainty, fear, and isolation, new parents need our support more than ever. For every moment we can relieve the stress parents face, we can create opportunity for connection. 

This opportunity to support local programs is 100% virtual thanks to the online platform YouGiveGoods. Visit our donation page to select the items you would like to donate to families with young children, or pick a package of items from the list. At the end of the drive all goods will be delivered to local families in the most need across the state at no extra cost to us or the local nonprofits.
