The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery works to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing families with support and…More emergency care for children. Families are able to bring their children to one of the three nursery locations in the St. Louis area when they face domestic violence situations, stress, a lack of housing or parental illness. Children receive care and family members receive access to parent education classes, emergency funds and crisis interventions.
Crisis nursery has a 24-hour helpline, 314-768-3201. There are now five crisis nursery locations: two in St. Charles, one in St. Louis City, one in Wentzville and another in North St. Louis County.
