  ›Why to Make a Referral

Too often parents who do not have emergency caregivers must make unsafe choices for the care of their children with potentially devastating consequences.   

We can help.  If you are - or know - a parent who has a child under the age of 10, we can provide safe, nurturing, short term care for their children while working with parents to engage support services focused on wellness, safety and stability for the long-term well-being of their family.
