LSS Crisis Nursery

All parents need support.

 If you are facing a crisis and need help caring for your children, contact the LSS Crisis Nursery at 218.302.6879.

Parents need support to be effective caregivers and provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow into healthy adults. Parents who are dealing with emergencies or crises such as sudden illness, housing problems, divorce or separation, or financial strains, may need time alone to resolve the crisis.

A child's parent or legal guardian can request emergency day and night care for up to three days by calling their local Crisis Nursery. Trained staff can also provide referrals, counseling and support, as well as supplies in emergency situations. Children from 0–12 years of age are eligible for Crisis Nursery care. 

We offer family support services, including a crisis line, emergency daycare and overnight care.
