The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery Saves Babies Lives, Keeps Kids Safe and Builds Strong Families! For the past 25 years, we have worked to prevent child abuse and neglect. 99% of the children we have worked with have not experienced abuse or neglect and 99% have returned home! The Crisis Nursery now has 5 locations and 4 Outreach Centers! The St. Louis and St. Charles communities have been very supportive. We have over 300 volunteers that rock babies, read books and take the kids outside to play!
