Children’s Relief Nursery

Our commitment is to work with children in the first, most important years of life. Our mission is to keep children safe and families strong. Our vision is to end child abuse and neglect in our community.


Key Services

The key to our success is on our emphasis on secure, safe, and stable parent-child relationships.

We provide a range of services that “wrap-around” the child and their family to reduce parental stress and social isolation.  We’re teaching parenting skills, strengthening bonds between parents and their babies, providing targeted services, reducing child behavioral problems and improving social-emotional development in very young children.

We believe that by focusing on the social and emotional well-being of the youngest, most vulnerable children, we can strengthen families. We do this at a time when we can have the greatest impact on their lives, when children are infants through age four. Our children and their families get the help they need, when they need it, to overcome their difficulties and emerge stronger — as a family. Together, we are making children and families stronger.

Since the 2012 merger of the Children’s Relief Nursery with LifeWorks NW, clients have access to a host of additional services for all members of their family. Helping people by offering caring services is the core of LifeWorks NW – making life better for those we serve, and strengthening the whole community. LifeWorks NW has developed the most comprehensive array of integrated preventionmental health and addiction services available, providing confidential, compassionate, effective support throughout the lifespan.
