Swindells Resource Center of Providence Child Center supports parents and caregivers of children who have special needs, developmental delays or disabilities. We provide resources, information and education to communities throughout Oregon and southwest Washington.
Events: Swindells provides learning opportunities all year long. Our presenters include local experts in various medical and educational fields, and we partner with organizations to bring in nationally and internationally known advocates for children and families. View our events calendar for details and current information.
My Child's Life Care Notebook and Organizer: This functions as a personal health record and helps parents coordinate the complex records of their child's care, services and providers. The Care Notebook is available online in English and Spanish. Our Swindells Resource Center staff offer training to help families get started with the Care Notebook.
Swindells resource libraries: Located at each of our centers, the libraries provide useful information on a wide variety of subjects of interest to families of children with special needs. Books are available for loan at no cost and can be mailed anywhere they are needed. Parents and caregivers may view the searchable online library and request an item for pickup. Videos are also available for viewing at Swindells centers; however, we do not lend videos.
Volunteer opportunities: To volunteer with Swindells Resource Center, please call 503-215-2429. Volunteer opportunities include working in our library, organizing information for our events, and helping on the day of an event.
Swindells services are available at little or no cost to families of children with special needs because of philanthropy. To support our work, please contact the Providence Children's Health Foundation or see the Providence Child Center Wishbook.
