It takes a village to raise a child. For many families needing additional support, our Relief Nursery program is that village. We offer safety, caring, nurturing, mentoring, and unconditional support.
Our Relief Nursery program is a lifeline and safe haven. We give parents the tools necessary to raise healthy, happy kids.
What is a Relief Nursery?
The Relief Nursery is a free and voluntary therapeutic early childhood program for at-risk children ages birth to 6 years.
Our program works to strengthen and preserve families by providing parent education, advocacy, and counseling. Services include personalized home visits and therapeutic classrooms in Corvallis and Monroe.

“With the support of a unique collection of family services at Old Mill Center, my eyes were opened to a brand-new life and to the fact that the world was not really an ugly and mean place. By 30 I will be able to support my family by myself.”-Ana, Relief Nursery parent
