Choose Kindness.

Comfort a Child. Empower a Family.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!


Catalog of Kindness

On average, we serve 750 unduplicated children and 450 different families per year. Each admission is unique and requires individual attention. For this reason, the most impactful option for giving this holiday season is a monetary gift. 

Here’s how monetary gifts compare to other forms of giving:

In-kind donations are helpful, however, each family we serve has specific needs. A monetary gift can be used to purchase items to meet these needs, but more importantly it contributes to the programs themselves.

For families to thrive, they need the resources and tools to be successful. Our team of trained specialists walks alongside each family to build a trusting relationship and arrange for meaningful services. Monetary gifts allow us to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of families. The impact goes far beyond an item or two.

Attend Our Event

Crisis Nursery’s Annual Children’s Holiday Shop is a tradition for many families in Champaign-Urbana and the surrounding communities. Last year, over $29,000 was raised for Crisis Nursery’s programs and services! Thank you for your past support of this incredible event!

We are sad to announce that we are unable to host the Children's Holiday Shop this year. However, we are excited to share a new holiday event with the community, Santa’s Drive-Thru Workshop!

Just like the programs and services at Crisis Nursery, this new event is FREE and open for the entire community, December 11th - 13th. Families will have the opportunity to drive through with their little ones, grab a photo with Santa, and visit our giving tree. Santa's helpers have even hidden golden tickets for a lucky few to find throughout the weekend!
