Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery

40 years strong

Share your love this season

As we enter this season of giving and thanksgiving, many of us are looking forward to quality time with family, friends, and loved ones. But there are many in our community who don’t have supportive relationships to share in the good times or to help out when things get tough. That’s why, for 35 years, the Crisis Nursery has been a trusted resource for families in their time of crisis.

As a mother left the Nursery with her kids recently, she told the Family Advocate how grateful she was to be able to rely on the Nursery when she felt all alone: “Thank you all so much. I do not have family or people I can trust, but I trust you all and your staff.”

You can help us give local families a brighter season. Read below for some exciting ways you can get involved with the Nursery and give back to your community.
