Welcome to KARE

About Us

How We're Helping


We are a non-profit organization focused on helping make the world around us a safer, happier place for the children and families in our community and surrounding areas by providing safe, nurturing care for the small children of families experiencing a stressful situation.   

It is the vision of the KARE Crisis Nursery that all children in our community will be able to grow and thrive free from the threat or possibility of child abuse and/or neglect. Our mission therefore, is to provide shelter and respite for the children and assistance to their families who are facing a crisis, and to safely and effectively supervise Court Ordered visitations for families seeking reunification.
