Our Safe Children program is available for families who are experiencing a crisis/emergency and no other resources are available to help. The Nursery is child centered and family focused. Trained professionals and committed volunteers strive to make every interaction positive while providing nurturing care for children. Services are voluntary, confidential and offered at no cost to the parent. If needed, basic care items such as diapers, wipes, formula and clothing may be available.
Staffing at the nursery
When at the Nursery, your child will be cared for by trained, professional staff. Calls will be answered by a Crisis Advocate and children will be cared for by a Lead Children's Specialist and a Children's Specialist.
Crisis Advocates are responsible for assessing calls that come to the 24-hour crisis line, scheduling crisis care, helping parents with crisis counseling, follow-up, resource linkage, and referrals.
Children's Specialists work as a team to oversee the crisis care floor. This includes the needs of children and delivering individualized care in a positive, nurturing environment.
