For many children, stress is hard to verbalize so they will give you a “picture” that tells you everything is fine. However, given the opportunity to express themselves in a safe environment often reveals a different “picture”.
When families are in crisis and parents have nowhere to turn, the Children's Cottage Crisis Nursery, offers a 24/7, 365 day safe haven where children can take a break from stressful situations, and are given nurturing care while their parents receive the help they need.
With your financial support, we can “Change the Picture” for the children we serve, and build a community of Safe Children in Healthy Families. Click here to donate now.
Our home visitors for all of our community-based programs are in constant communication with our families to provide support to parents of young children who are seeking to improve their parenting skills and overcome challenges in their lives.
