ONTARIO – The Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery is offering home visits to families within Malheur County. 

“We want to keep young children at risk for maltreatment safe and isolation can be a risk factor for abuse or neglect,” the nursery’s executive director Kathie Collins wrote in an email. 

The home visits are funded by a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.

The goal is to provide parents with child rearing knowledge and parenting support. 

“Each home visit is tailored to fit a child’s age and stage of development,” said . . .
