PacifiCare Foundation Contributes $10,000 to Bend Relief Nursery
by Bend Weekly News Sources

The PacifiCare Foundation, a nonprofit organization established by PacifiCare, a UnitedHealthcare company, has contributed $10,000 to Bend-based MountainStar Family Relief Nursery.

MountainStar Family Relief Nursery provides strength-based child abuse and neglect-prevention programs serving families with children ages 0-4 who have a past history with or who are at high risk of child abuse.  The $10,000 PacifiCare Foundation grant will be used to support the Relief Nursery program that will provide parent support and referrals, parent skills training, home visits, basic needs support, emergency and respite care and transportation.

This program provides critical resources to the local community,” said Steve Schmidt, CEO of UnitedHealthcare’s Northwest Region.  “We look forward to working together to provide continued support to more individuals and families in need of support services.”

The PacifiCare Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to charitable and educational causes that enhance the health, wellness and welfare of individuals, families and the public at large.  The Foundation, which has donated tens of millions of dollars over the past ten years, is funded through donations made by employees.
