La Causa Crisis Nursery & Respite Center


La Causa's Crisis Nursery and Respite Center provides care for children for the prevention of abuse and neglect. The center is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year to provide care for children from birth to 12 years of age in a safe, free, nurturing place during times of family emergency/crisis, high parental stress or need for respite care.

The homestyle shelter is Wisconsin's only 24 hour shelter providing free care for children during times of high stress when the responsibility of children can place additional stress on parents, which can result in harm to a child.

If you would like to donate items, the shelter glady accepts donations of ziploc bags, baby bottles, sippy cups, paper towels, toilet paper, non-toxic arts and crafts supplies, socks for boys(ages 9-12), underwear for boys(ages 9-12), pajamas for older kids(boys and girls ages 9-12).

Volunteer opportunities are welcome at the crisis nursery center.
