About Relief Nursery

A message from Relief Nursery
Kelly Sutherland, Executive Director

For 40 years, whether you are talking with Relief Nursery families, staff, or volunteers, the consistent message you will hear is one of passion and commitment to keeping children safe from abuse and neglect.

At the core of the Relief Nursery is the belief in focusing on, and building upon, the strength of each individual family. A wide array of support services are provided; always with a respect for the diversity of the families we serve. Research-based principles are embedded throughout our services while recognizing the changing needs of families. From crisis response, to therapeutic classrooms, to alcohol and drug recovery support, our staff work to keep children in our community safe from abuse and neglect. Through our state, national and international replication efforts Relief Nursery is a leader in child abuse prevention.

Children are our future and the generosity of the community is a testament to their belief in Relief Nursery. The community, through its donation of time, talent and resources has continually helped us nurture children and keep them safe.

“What a child doesn’t receive he can seldom later give.”

P.D. James, Time to Be in Earnest
