Our Purpose

The Purpose of the Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery is to
Prevent Child Abuse and Neglect.

We help children heal from difficult life experiences and wrap a variety of services around families in crisis to help them rebuild their lives and help their children thrive. We nurture hope.

2015 Relief Run Color Blast

2015-run_poster2The Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery is gearing up for its sixth annual Relief Run Saturday, April 25, 2015.

Dancing, Zumba, and outrageous fun will be had from 10 to 10:45 a.m. in the street between Ontario Lions Park and Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. The starting gun for the Relief Run Color Blast fires at 11:00 a.m.

The 5K event will feature walkers, joggers, runners, and strollers getting pelted with paint. (Don’t worry; it’s colored cornstarch – safe enough to eat if you wanted to, but we don’t recommend it!)

Sunglasses and additional paint packets will be available for purchase at $2 each. (And … rumor has it prizes will be available for the team with the best costumes!)

Child Care Bus

TVCRN has a child care bus coming! This vehicle is equipped to hold 12 young children in car seats or booster seats. A driver will remain seated throughout the route and a classroom assistant will buckle/unbuckle children. We are seeking a driver (or two) with a good heart and a clean driving record. If you are interested in working a few hours each day and want to be part of the TVCRN team, please consider APPLYING.

Teagan Wick’s Senior Project

wick_project2Vale High School’s Teagan Wick chose Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery for her senior project. Teagan helped the home visiting staff by creating some color wheels for the Kindergarten Readiness Project (a partnership with the Malheur Education Service District). Here, Teagan shows how the wheels work, with children in our therapeutic classroom asked questions such as, “What color is the frog?” They then may move a wheel to the correct color, and give a verbal answer as well.
