Baby Care Drive

Youth and Family Services: Mankato Area Crisis Nursery

Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:5

What We Do

At LSS Crisis Nursery we understand that to provide a safe and nurturing
home environment, there are times when parents can benefit from
additional support. Parents 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. LSS Crisis Nursery provides
short-term, emergency child care for children age 12 and younger.
Emergency care requests vary from a few hours to 72 hours.
The Crisis Nursery also provides parents with crisis support, referrals to
community resources and personal care items such as diapers and wipes.
