The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery is committed to preventing child abuse and neglect.
The Crisis Nursery provides a short-term, safe haven for about 6,500 children a year, birth through age 12, whose families face an emergency caused by illness, homelessness, domestic violence, or overwhelming parental stress.
We know that parenting is hard and if parents do not have support, children can bear the brunt of parental anger and stress. The Crisis Nursery provides care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at five sites, and support for families at ten Outreach Centers throughout St. Louis, St. Charles, Southern Illinois, and surrounding regions.
The Crisis Nursery is an independent, not-for-profit agency. Since 1986 the Crisis Nursery has helped over 114,000 children.
