About Albertina Kerr Centers

For more than a century, Kerr has partnered with families and communities throughout Oregon to support children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges. Through a wide variety of programs and services, they help individuals to lead self-determined lives and realize their full potential.

  • Kerr helps individuals, children and families in a variety of ways.  For children our programs include outpatient and community-based treatment services, foster care, a family resource center and crisis psychiatric services. For adults and children with developmental disabilities we provide group homes and programs that connect individuals to their community through job and volunteer placement.
  • The declining economy and the growing pressure on families and communities means that the critically important services that Kerr provides are needed now more than ever.
  • Kerr’s exceptional financial management and the work of 1,000 volunteers ensures that 91 cents of every dollar is dedicated to delivering programs and services.
  • As we look to the next 100 years, our goal continues to be developing innovative solutions and expanding capacity for urgent community needs. Community support of our events and fund-raising efforts is vital to our work, and raises critically needed funds and awareness for children, families and adults in need.
