The only program of its kind in New York State, the Crisis Nursery, a program of The Center For Youth, delivers no-cost, emergency childcare to families during crises. In this episode Sarah interviews Monica Thomas, the Program Manager for Crisis Nursery, and Joanne Lathan, the Assistant Manager.
The Crisis Nursery includes two facilities; one on the west side of the city of Rochester on Genesee Park Blvd, and a second location called Owen’s House, located in the northeast quadrant of Rochester on Rosewood Terrace.
Both Crisis Nursery locations are open 24/7 365 days year and staffed by The Center for Youth and volunteers.
