Safe Kids. Strong Families. Healthy Community.
The Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery is an extraordinary place. For children, it provides a haven of unconditional love and attention from adults whose only hope is to create lifetime memories of security. For parents who are overwhelmed and lack support, it’s a breath of fresh air and helps eliminate tremendous burdens.
Named in memory of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died of child abuse related injuries at the age of two, we’re committed to preventing her story from happening again. Since opening our doors in 1987, we’ve cared for over 81,100 children and been a life-line of support and hope to every single parent.
This impact is completely funded by the support and generosity of committed champions who believe that keeping kids safe and strengthening families results in a more vibrant community for everyone.
