Discussing child abuse prevention with Saint Louis Crisis Nursery

Aug 22, 2017

On Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air, we discussed the prevention of child abuse in the St. Louis region with DiAnne Mueller, the Chief Executive Officer of the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery

The organization provides emergecy intervention, respite care and family support. The five nurseries and nine outreach centers under the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery umbrella serve more than 6,800 children every year. Over the past 31 years, they’ve served over 110,000 children.

"We target low-income families, single-parent families that are struggling with any kind of a crisis and they have nowhere else to turn," Mueller said. "It may be that they have been evicted, domestic violence or  a parent that is ill."
