SAFE CHILDREN

Program Overview

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.
