The Bay Area Crisis Nursery is the only crisis nursery in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Nursery is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year and serves children birth through 5 years.

The Nursery

We provide a warm, safe, loving homelike environment. Children may stay at the Nursery for up to 30 days. Each child will have their own bed during their stay. We provide everything a child needs while they are with us—food, clothing, shoes, diapers, formula, and the rest.

Case Management

We use a family-centered, strength-based approach to case planning and referral recommendations to make sure that the services we refer families to are tailored to meet their strengths and needs. Families guide us in referring services that they think will be most helpful to. We assist families in creating a plan that sets everyone up for success.

Community Givebacks

Every child who comes to one of our homes leaves with a care package filled with clothes, shoes, hygiene products, diapers, wipes, toys, and books. Our clients reach out to us throughout the year, and we happily provide whatever they need.

We also offer all of our clients who have come to the Nursery during the year, a Thanksgiving dinner, holiday gifts, an Easter basket, and back-to-school backpack.
