Mission Statement

Protecting Children, Strengthening Families, Transforming Communities

Description

A relief nursery (also called a crisis nursery) is a 24/7, 365 days-a-year safe place for temporary care of children when families are in crisis. It is not a long-term day care center, but a place for "ordinary people in extraordinary situations, in need of temporary help" (http://everything2.com/title/Crisis+nursery ).

Families may experience crisis for a variety of reasons, including a parent or sibling in the hospital, a parent needing to travel out of town for a job interview, or a parent being so overwhelmed by the daily demands of life that he or she doesn’t feel able to care for their child at that time. The types of crises are limitless, but the truth remains that the child needs to feel safety and comfort in the midst of a difficult time. That safety and comfort will be found at Jeremiah's Place.

If you would like to become involved, send us a message or an email at info@jeremiahsplace.org.
