(KMOV) – After serving families for nearly a quarter century, the St. Louis Crisis Nursery has been dealing with its own difficulties.
Earlier this year, the nursery learned that it would be losing its space at Forest Park Hospital where it had been for 24 years. The nursery serves children whose parents fear they are losing control and might do them harm.
CEO Dianne Mueller says as the economy goes down, calls for help go up.
After learning the frightening news, the Centene Corporation stepped in with a $500,000 gift, and now for the first time ever, the nursery has its own building, and that’s “Good News 4 a Change.”
The Crisis Nursery has five centers serves more than 7,000 children a year. They also have a 24-hour hotline: 314-768-3201.
