The mission of Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery is to end child abuse and neglect and create strong, healthy families.
In 2016, almost 40,000 Minnesota children were the subject of accepted child maltreatment reports, assessed by county and tribal agencies — a 25 percent increase from 2015.
Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery is a trusted resource for parents to call in their time of crisis. We offer a 24-hour crisis line, crisis counseling, community referrals, parent education classes, a family support group, a home visiting program, and overnight residential care for parents to place their children voluntarily—newborn through age six—for up to three nights while they address their crisis.
This past year, your support positively impacted the community:
- 3764 crisis calls managed
- 2277 times children were tucked into bed for the night
- 2877 referrals given to families
- 528 children from 313 families stayed at the Nursery
- 47 families and 95 children served through our home visiting program
Your generous donation helps us serve hundreds of local families who turn to us in their time of crisis.
