MountainStar is a child abuse and neglect prevention organization serving Central Oregon families. We help children overcome adverse childhood experiences, leading to improved socio-emotional skills, healthier relationships, and long-term health. This investment in families results in increased employment and earnings, parent education, generational stability, and decreases in government assistance. Additionally, the community benefits from decreases in child abuse and neglect, keeping children out of foster care and the juvenile justice system.
We envision communities that support each parent’s efforts to nurture their children’s emotional, physical, and intellectual development in a safe environment.
