Three Rivers Foundation Award Check to Child Development Center Playground Upgrade
Published on March 12, 2018
Edith Baumgart, Director of Family Services at Willamette Family, received a check for $2,500 from Three Rivers Foundation to be used for the Child Development Center upgrade to the Infant & Toddler Playground.
In 2016 the Preschool playground was upgraded and now funds are being sought to improve the playground for the younger children. The playground equipment at the Child Development Center provides age-appropriate outdoor activities for the children of clients. The equipment was selected to be developmentally interactive and stimulating to promote children’s overall wellbeing and supports the child’s gross motor development.
Toddlers & Infants Playground Improvement Update
Published on March 12, 2018
Funding for the Child Development Center’s Toddlers & Infants Playground Improvement project is underway. The new equipment will be age-appropriate and provides outdoor activities that are developmentally interactive and stimulating to promote children’s overall wellbeing and support the child’s gross motor development. Below is the graph showing our progress in raising funds to complete this project; we are three-quarters of the way to funding this project.
In 2016 the Preschool equipment was updated and now we are raising funds to upgrade the equipment used by infants and toddlers. The updated playground equipment will give all children enrolled in our program access to developmentally-appropriate, stimulating, and interactive outdoor activities in a safe and fun environment.
An updated playground would also benefit our parenting clients who live on-site with their children and can use the playground evenings and on weekends. Other residential clients also have children who do not live with them, but may use the equipment during visitations on weekends. The playground is an ideal way for parents to spend time and bond with their children.

Meet Graham, Jennifer & Kaycee
...their story is just one of many waiting to be told.
Published on November 27, 2017
The Child Development Center (CDC) allows parents to attend substance abuse treatment and mental health services while their child/ children receive therapeutic services in the CDC. The CDC teachers help children learn how to walk, talk, write, count, interact with other children, and much more. Many of the children who attend the center have been born affected by prenatal substance use, and/or have experienced abuse and/or neglect in their past. The teachers are trauma-informed and work hard to provide a therapeutic environment for all of the children.
Kaycee was cared for at the Child Development Center (CDC) while Jennifer and Graham were in treatment. Her mother Jennifer was receiving treatment through the Women’s Residence Program and her father Graham was receiving treatment through the Dad’s Program. Both of those programs help clients to manage their recovery, while allowing them to be active parents in their children’s lives and spend time parenting their children.
Without Willamette Family’s Child Development Center, many children would be separated from their parent and placed in foster care. The CDC gives parents and children the ability to remain together in a safe and well monitored environment.
