Swindells Resource Center
at Providence Children's Health
With generous help from donors, we provide support and resources for children with special health care needs and their families. All services are provided a little or no cost.
A Special Place for Parents and Caregivers
Swindells Resource Center of Providence Child Center supports parents and caregivers of children who experience special needs, developmental delays or disabilities.
Swindells is the only center of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Since it was established in 2002, it has grown from a simple lending library in Portland to a statewide network, offering library services, educational events, support groups and parenting tools throughout Oregon.
We offer families and caregivers the tools and support they need to help children reach their highest potential. We have a wide range of resources to help children regardless of their diagnoses, age, language or family income. All services are offered at little or no cost.
Learning that your child has special health care needs, developmental delays or disabilities is life changing, isolating and scary. Swindells Resource Center supports parents and caregivers of these children by providing peer-to-peer support, free resources, and information and education to communities throughout the region – each year we help tens of thousands of families.
