About CARES Northwest
Founded in 1987, CARES (Child Abuse and Response Evaluation Services) Northwest is a collaborative effort among Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, Kaiser Permanente, OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital and Providence Children's Health.
Helping young victims reclaim their childhood
As a community-based medical program for the assessment, treatment and prevention of child abuse, CARES Northwest provides children a safe, compassionate place to share their difficult stories.
Medical providers, mental health professionals, child protective caseworkers and detectives work under one roof to coordinate their response. This caring approach minimizes the trauma for both the child and their family so healing can begin right away.
$5 Million gift launches expansion of services
Thanks to a transformational gift of $5 million from an anonymous donor, CARES Northwest is expanding its services for abused and neglected children. This gift – the largest donation in the program’s history – is making it possible for CARES Northwest to help hundreds more children, reduce wait times for services and strengthen prevention efforts.
On behalf of the community, we thank this generous donor for investing in the lives of our most vulnerable.
