Car seats Contact your insurance/state insurance by calling the number on the back of the card; many insurances have a car seat program. Remember new is always the safest, and never buy a seat that you cannot 100% verify the history of.

Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery24-Hour Child Care
When parents find themselves in distress, (emotional, domestic violence, homelessness, depression, financial, etc.) they call the Crisis Nursery to ask for help.  Nursery staff members schedule the family for an immediate intake session where every effort is made to assess the cause(s) of the parental stress. These parents bring their children between birth and age 6 to the Crisis Nursery where they are taken care of in our safe and nurturing environment. Children can stay at the Crisis Nursery for up to 72 hours, or longer if circumstances are dire. Care is provided by a staff of house parents trained in early childhood development with support from numerous volunteers. While they are at the Crisis Nursery, children receive food, clothing, diapers and anything else they might need. The Crisis Nursery is licensed to care for up to 23 children day and night.
Accessibility to parents is enhanced by the fact that we remain open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Call us anytime at 509-535-3155 and ask to speak with a Family Support Specialist.

God's Closet is a non-profit organization. We collect new and gently used children's clothes and shoes, then once a quarter we have a Free Shop-Day Event and give the clothes out free of charge!!! We charge only a $1.00 entrance fee per family. The fee is used exclusively to pay for any expenses we incur. Currently, there are no requirements to receive donations from God's Closet. If you live in Spokane or any of the surrounding areas and you need clothes for your little ones, we invite you to join us for our Free Shop-Day Event where you can take -free of charge- clothes for your children.

The next Shop Day will be:   April 30th, 2018
Our hope is that this change will allow even more Spokane families to get a little boost.
