CourtCare is a program coordinated by the Multnomah Bar Foundation. It provides free childcare services in the downtown and East Multnomah County Courthouses for children age six weeks through ten years old while their parents conduct court business. Operated by Volunteers of America Oregon, CourtCare serves around 100 children and their families every month. The program has served over 16,000 children and their families since opening its doors in December 2001.
