LSS Crisis Nursery staff understand that to provide a safe and nurturing environment at home, there are times when parents need additional support. This confidential and voluntary service is available in four areas in Minnesota.

Parents dealing with personal stress or crises such as an illness, housing problems, divorce or separation, financial strains or other issues can benefit by contacting us.

A child’s parent or legal guardian can request:

  • Short-term care by licensed providers for children up through age 12
  • Crisis support for families
  • Information and referrals to additional community resources
