Birth To Three is 2010 Rotary Duck Race Recipient
Birth To Three will be one of five agency recipients of the 2010 Great Rotary Duck Race, a fundraising effort by United Rotary Eugene-Springfield-Cottage Grove.
With this support, Birth To Three will provide two teen parent groups that serve 135 vulnerable pregnant and parenting teens and their children. The Young Parents Program provides parenting education, support and referrals that are vital in helping these young families reduce the potential for child abuse.
