The Yolo Crisis Nursery has served the at-risk children of Yolo County for several years. The nursery serves about 500 children each year, providing care for ages newborn to 5 years old.
The organization that has the contract to operate the nursery has announced its closure on June 30. This will result in a large hole in the county’s ability to support care for these needy children. The children can stay for up to one month at no cost to the family.
The Rotary Club of Davis has been a longtime supporter of the nursery and is working with the Friends of the Crisis Nursery and the Yolo County Board of Supervisors to find a way to help keep the nursery open. State Sen. Lois Wolk is addressing the problem at the legislative level. Wolk was instrumental in the initial establishment of the nursery.
I hope this letter will serve as a reminder of the plight of the nursery and stimulate many of you to take an interest and contact Judy Wolf at [email protected] with your ideas and offers to help.
