Statistics in our community show that there are as many as 75 to 100 children who could be helped annually by the KARE Crisis Nursery.

A stay in the KARE Crisis Nursery can go far in preventing involvement in the County or Court systems. Intervention at the earliest stages of stress can prevent child abuse and/or neglect while assisting parents at times when they have nowhere else to turn.

Since 1999, Child Protective Services has received calls involving 5,200 children, with 1,700 in the age group that KARE could help.

-United Way Community Assessment 2001

Medical professional and child development specialists have concluded that the most important years in a young child's life occur between birth and age 3.

The KARE Crisis Nursery is an important option during these precious and formative years.
