DO YOU HAVE A HEART FOR CHILDREN

You can make a difference in the life of a child. Crisis Nursery has an opportunity for you.

Crisis Nursery is looking to add licensed daycare and foster care providers in Scott and Carver Counties. We especially need more providers where calls are most concentrated in Shakopee, Savage, Prior Lake and Chaska.

We are looking for Volunteer Crisis Nursery Advocates to assist in answering our 24 hour helpline.
