CRISIS NURSERY
Crisis Nursery's Community Shelter and Day Respite programs' goal is to stablize families in crisis. Children living in families with multiple problems - lack of financial resources, mental illness, single parents, homelessness or unstable housing, domestic violence, lack of education, incarceration - are at high risk for abuse and neglect, especially when parents are faced with difficult, stressful situations. Having the option to voluntarily place their children in a safe and nurturing environment, while crises are resolved empowers parents to make positive decisions for their families, even when times are toughest.
