Services for Youth


Crisis Nursery Siblings

LSS Crisis Nurseries

All parents need support sometimes.

Services are free, confidential and voluntary.  

FREE support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All 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 care for children ages birth to 12 years old. Our trained staff can also provide counseling and support, diapers are other supplies in emergency situations and information and referrals to additional community resources.  

LSS Crisis Nurseries are available in the following Minnesota communities:

Duluth Area Crisis Nursery

Mankato Area Crisis Nursery

St. Cloud Area Crisis Nursery

Licensed childcare or foster care homes are needed to share their love, lives and homes with children in need. Please contact a LSS Crisis Nursery program coordinator if you are interested.
