Car Seat Assistance Program

If you need help to purchase a car seat there are several agencies supporting a program to get you a car set at low cost. The program is administered by "Safe Kids":http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/safekids/local.shtml here in Salem. Our office is not directly involved in the program but do support its efforts to make car seats available to families. This is also an excellent program to check if you are installing it correctly. It is very common for the seat to not be installed in the absolute correct way.
