“These are, and will be for the foreseeable future, rocky times for community service organizations who serve the most vulnerable individuals and families as we all weather the financial impact of the pandemic,” said executive director Bettina Schempf. “We are honored to have a supporter whose passion for our work led them to engaging others in supporting children and families in our community. We are very grateful for such commitment.”
The center is providing services to nearly 1,000 children in Corvallis by shifting to COVID-19 precautionary protocols including Telehealth, socially distanced meetings, internet/phone connections, and Facebook classrooms.
