As St. Louis Crisis Nursery’s DiAnne Mueller points out, their homes are often the most dangerous places for some children. That’s why the shelter, support, and counseling provided by Crisis Nursery is so important.
In FY 04: Crisis Nursery admitted 3,730 children
5,146 families were provided counseling and support
406 community outreach visits were provided to families
When I learned that state funding for Crisis Nursery had been cut in the state’s budget, I asked Gov. Matt Blunt to consider restoring funding.
Yesterday, I learned that the state funding has been restored.
