One of our core values/objectives at Adrian Jules Clothier is to make a difference and raise awareness in our community and we do this through our AJ Community Connections initiative. One of our local connections is The Center for Youth. We have partnered with them on several occasions, most notably during Fashion Week every year. (FYI, Fashion Week 2017 is October 9th– 14th) Recently, in an effort to better understand the organization, our staff and some of our clients visited the Crisis Nursery Center of Greater Rochester.
What is a Crisis Nursery Center?
We’re glad you asked. The Center of Youth shares on their website:
“When parents are in crisis, and they have no one else to turn to for safe childcare, they can contact the Crisis Nursery or The Center for Youth’s 24-hour help line. Crisis Nursery staff will assist each family based on their individual needs. Some parents need only a few hours of childcare while they resolve their issues; others may need to access the Crisis Nursery on an on-going basis until a crisis is resolved. All families receive referrals to community resources that can provide permanent assistance, as needed.”
How Can You Help?
Touring the center was a great experience that left us grateful. We are so fortunate to have this facility in Rochester, NY. This center is a short term strategy until a longer term solution can be found and it has helped so many families. It’s the only program of its kind in New York State.
We look forward to our continued partnership with the Center for Youth and hope you might consider connecting with them as well.
