Safe children. Strong Families. Island of Safety.
I was introduced to the amazing work of Crisis Nursery by our Cheer Coach and Director of Crisis Nursery, Stephanie Record. I cannot imagine what I would do if I did not the network of family and friends to help us! Crisis Nursery provides that comfort to those parents who are not blessed with such a network!
To stick my middle finger up at turning 40, I'm running my first marathon and hoping to raise enough money for one day of operations at Crisis Nursery. 26.2 miles and $1800 are both lofty goals but I promise to do my part by running the 26.2 miles but need the support of my family and friends to raise the funds.
ASKING FOR HELP IS A SIGN OF STRENGTH
Crisis Nursery creates an "Island of Safety" dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect by providing 24-hour emergency care for children and support to strengthen families in crisis.
Crisis Nursery is the only emergency-based child care facility in Champaign County that is open 24 hours, 365 days a year for the entire community to access with no fees or income eligibility.
