Where children have reason to smile Albertina Kerr provides a wide range of services for children with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges as well as support for their families. Kerr’s programs are unique in Oregon, providing intensive intervention and psychiatric treatment for toddlers, young children and teenagers from 3 years to 17. Many of these children are struggling to function at home, at school or in the community. Kerr provides treatment and skills training geared toward reuniting children with their families when possible and creating new potential for a healthy, productive life for each child. Hope for tHe future A small town boy from the Oregon Coast, Conner* attempted to commit suicide at age 17. After a frightening trip to the emergency room, he was admitted to the Crisis Psychiatric Care program.

“Providing foster care has changed me as a human being. It has taught me what it means to really love.” – Renee, FoSteR CARe PRovIDeR



His father Frank was concerned that he needed help and hopeful that Albertina Kerr could provide it. “The staff are smart, they are caring, they really make an effort to connect with the kids,” said Frank. “They go out of their way to help children and it goes beyond being just a job for them.” *All names have been changed to protect privacy.

Where people are included & empowered Albertina Kerr provides a wide range of services designed to support people with developmental disabilities. The people Kerr serves have mental and physical disabilities resulting in impairments to daily functioning and include diagnoses such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy. They receive care, skills training and support for community involvement in their homes, in the community and in group homes. enricHinG lives In 2012, Albertina Kerr added to its community inclusion offerings with the acquisition of three new programs that offer opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to participate in the workforce. Art from the Heart art studio and gallery where 40 to 50 artists work, Cans for Kids recycling program which serves nearly 100 companies in Portland and Salem, and The Snack Squad which stocks treat boxes for more than 300 local businesses.

“I’ve learned coping skills and I can solve problems. I’m listening to people and not ignoring them. That’s what I used to do.” – SARAh, lIveS In A GRouP hoMe FoR younG ADultS woRKInG towARD InCReASeD InDePenDenCe



Rebecca, who has been coming to the studio for more than seven years, enjoys weaving, pottery and painting, especially in the style of her favorite artist, Thomas Kinkade. She’s also a fan of the theater program where her great sense of humor shines. Most of all, she enjoys her work because “we do a lot of cool stuff, it’s fun. And, I get paid when something sells.”

Evolving to meet community needs In 2011-12, Albertina Kerr continued to evolve to meet community needs – improving and expanding services and facilities for Oregon’s most vulnerable. Here are some highlights: • Albertina Kerr was named Oregon’s 2nd most admired non-profit in a survey by the Portland Business Journal of more than 1,800 CEOs and business leaders. • Kerr acquired three new community inclusion programs that provide workforce opportunities for people with developmental disabilities: Art from the Heart, Cans for Kids and The Snack Squad. • Albertina Kerr entered into a partnership with several other non-profits to expand the Project SEARCH employment program for adults with developmental disabilities into Oregon with a target launch of 2013. • To improve efficiencies, Kerr partnered with Trillium Family Services to share technology staff and consolidated our Eugene offices.



• Two new youth group homes were purchased and renovated. In addition, the Intensive Treatment Program received a much needed renovation and an adult group home in Silverton transitioned from state management to Albertina Kerr. • And to lead Albertina Kerr into the future, the board of directors and foundation trustees developed the long-term strategic plan for 2012-2016 based on the key pillars of a thriving workforce, operational viability and leadership and agility.
