Crisis Nursery

Parents who are dealing with emergencies such as a sudden illness, housing problems, divorce or separation, or financial strains, may need time to resolve the crisis. All parents need support to be effective caregivers and to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their children.

CAP Agency is committed to providing a safe haven for children during these times of crisis. We offer 24-hour family support services that include a crisis line, emergency daycare and overnight care. We also strive to serve as a leading voice for child abuse prevention; thereby, transforming the community into an environment that is safe, stable, and loving for all children. Currently, CAP Agency provides support to over 200 families in crisis.

Together, we can support vulnerable children and their families.
