Family Tree Relief Nursery — PO BOX 844 Albany, OR 97321
St Anne’s is the founder of the Family Tree Relief Nursery, a community-based non-profit for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Family Tree offers free therapeutic pre-school classes, home visitations and parenting education for at-risk families with children under age 6. The Relief Nursery also runs a clothes, diaper and toy closet on its site to help meet the basic needs of enrolled families.
St. Anne’s partners with other local churches to help the poor or disabled in the community with specific, tangible needs. Some of the assistance offered includes the provision of school supplies to needy children, hospital or in-home visitation to the elderly and shut-ins, food and blanket distribution, gardening/grounds maintenance, and general household repairs.
