Last week, a new family came to use the Maryville Crisis Nursery for the first time. Janet* and her 2 children are currently living in a shelter and she hopes to find a home for them soon. The children were welcomed with open arms by all of the Nursery staff and instantly started making friends. When Janet returned to pick up her children, after working on her goals for long term stability for her family, they did not want to leave.
Our Family Advocate Worker called Janet 2 days later to check in and she said that her children called the Crisis Nursery “Home.” The children returned to the nursery this week and they had big smiles on their faces.
Your gift allows mothers like Janet to set and achieve goals that move her family out of crisis and homelessness to strength and stability. Your generosity provides 24-hour care and support for the most at-risk children and families in our community.
We meet each and every family where they are. We are there for them in crisis and we are there to help prevent a crisis! Please continue your support with a generous gift before our fiscal year ends.
