Crisis Nurseries and the Family First Prevention Services Act

On September 10, 2019, Providence House organized a webinar for crisis nurseries across the country to learn more about the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) and the opportunities it presents for our organizations.  We discussed the current implentation status and how we can work together as a crisis nursery community to collaborate and advocate for crisis nurseries.
