More Information
I volunteer at the Minneapolis Crisis Nursery and this is one of our busiest times of year where regular volunteers pull double duty to make sure everyone’s needs are met.

The Crisis Nursery sees a variety of clientele, from babies on their way to foster care, babies already in foster care whose caregivers need respite, babies and toddlers whose parents are struggling with opioid addiction or alcoholism, babies and toddlers whose mothers or caregivers are suffering from postpartum depression or another mental health crisis and need alternative care for a few days for everyone’s safety.

We do our absolute best to show love and compassion to every child that comes through our doors, and every mother or caregiver who is brave enough to say “I need help.”

This time of year is always just a bit heavier for our clientele, who often do not have family support near or far (which is a big part of why they access the crisis nursery). It’s also a heavy time of year for us volunteers as we are often at capacity for weeks on end this time of year and while we all believe in what we are doing, at times it feels a bit hopeless.

I would love to collect some letters of love and encouragement either to a mother/caregiver or volunteer— just designate who you are writing to.
