Saint Louis Crisis Nursery

In addition to providing short-term emergency care for children, Saint Louis Crisis Nursery provides families with basic essentials, such as food and diapers, through our pantries. As a Volunteer Group, you’ll support our kids and families by getting supplies ready for them to take home! Activities include packing bags of groceries and diapers, replenishing supplies in our pantries, and organizing incoming supplies. Volunteer Groups might also help with sorting donations, organizing, deep cleaning a Nursery, or other larger projects if interested/able. Volunteer Groups are welcomed Monday – Friday with some evening and limited weekend availability.

If your Company, Church, Sorority/Fraternity, Friend Group, etc., are interested in volunteering or if you have any questions, please let us know. We look forward to welcoming you to the Nursery!
