Since its inception in 2004 the Family Tree Relief Nursery has helped hundreds of children and their families to stay together as a family unit. Family Tree Relief Nursery is the only private, nonprofit organization in the area that provides these complete, integrated services: a therapeutic classroom and nursery, an outreach program and respite, home visitation, parent education and support. Multiple scientific longitudinal studies indicate that integrating these services is effective in reducing recurrences of abuse and neglect in high-risk families by 80%. Family Tree Relief Nursery is a child abuse and neglect prevention program offering free services to low income families with children under the age of 6. We support family stability, and work with children and parents to minimize the need for children to be removed from their home.
