On Sunday afternoon, September 11, the Maryville Crisis Nursery staff, the Crisis Nursery Advisory Council, Development staff, and volunteers hosted the Family Day at the Center for Children. The children and staff at the Children’s Healthcare Center joined in this family day. Families who have benefited from the Crisis Nursery came with their children to enjoy face-painting, active games, and tasty snacks. This afternoon provided a celebration of and support of families.
On this special day, we were honored to have a visit from the firefighters from Chicago Fire Department Engine 86, (Harlem & Irving). Other guests included the very first family to ever use the Maryville Crisis Nursery, shortly after it opened its doors in 2006.
We extend our thanks to the Center for Children staff (both Crisis Nursery and Center for Children), Development staff, and more Maryville staff who made this afternoon a joy.
