To a child pulled from an unsafe family and placed into foster care, Albertina Kerr Centers is a lifeline. For an adult with a developmental disability, Kerr's neighborhood homes are shelter and stability. To an emotionally scarred child, Kerr's art and pet therapy programs are often the remedy. In ways too numerous to list, Albertina Kerr Centers fills the needs of Oregon's children and families in crisis.
Locally funded, locally staffed, and based in Oregon for 100 years, Kerr is a quintessential example of what makes Portland great; an organization fully dedicated to helping those among us who have nowhere else to turn.
Race for the Roses benefits Kerr directly. Ninety-one cents of every dollar raised goes toward any of the several life-changing programs Kerr provides. Thank you for your participation and support, and good luck on race day. – less–ZoomInfo
