The Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery is a community-funded, non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect in the Spokane area. Since 1987, the Crisis Nursery has been a refuge for young children at risk of abuse and neglect, and a source of support for their parents.

The Nursery cares for children from birth through age six when there is a possibility these children may be injured or neglected due to family crisis situations like homelessness, poverty, substance abuse or domestic violence. The mission of the nursery is to improve the lives of children by providing immediate refuge and safety, and ongoing family support in an environment of unconditional love. Learn more at
