Since 1977, Crisis Nursery Inc., the Valley's longest-serving children's shelter, has provided a safe haven for more than 20,000 children in Greater Phoenix through child-centered and family-focused programs and services.

All of our programs support our mission: to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect by strengthening families and addressing the social, psychological, and developmental needs of each child. Families can turn to us at the beginning of a crisis situation when the opportunity to create lifelong change is greatest.

  • Our Children's Shelter   provides a safe haven and temporary home for children threatened by abuse, neglect or homelessness. The shelter also provides a day respite program for emergencies that don't require an overnight stay and affords health and development assessments for children while family crises are resolved. Crisis counseling for parents, as well as referrals and connections for addressing child and family needs are available to increase family stability.

  •  FACES Early Head Start  arranges individualized childhood development services for toddlers and promotes healthy family development. F.A.C.E.S. ensures that pregnant women and families with toddlers have healthy, well-adjusted family development skills and access to services and resources to help them become the best they can be.
  • Nurturing children in crisis is a large part of what we do; our Foster Care program provides victims of child abuse and neglect a place with a loving foster family that is trained to meet their unique physical, emotional and developmental needs. Families will receive ongoing education and support by dedicated licensing specialists who coach and mentor foster families through both the tough and rewarding times. We form a partnership between foster and birth families to maintain needed family connections and successful returns home when it is safe and acceptable to do so, as well as arrange adoptions for at-risk children.

We ask you to please do your part in order to help children achieve the happy, healthy lives they deserve! By  donating your time or resources, you can affect real change in the life of a child.
