Our Team

Get to know us better.

The Crisis Nursery is an essential service for families and children in Saskatoon.

Each year we provide care for over 1200 children whose families are in crisis and have no other stable source of support. We operate a 24/7/365 home away from home and welcome the children and families with unconditional love and support. All of our services are free of charge.

The Nursery embraces the African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”. We simply can’t do what we do without the generous support of our Saskatoon “Village” which includes people like you! Your help enables us to continue to be a beacon of support to people in our own community during times in their lives when they need it most.

If you want to learn more of our services or have a tour of our home away from home, do not hesitate to call or email us.

P.S. We were kids once too.
