Crisis Nursery

Jeremiah's Place is Pittsburgh's only crisis nursery providing emergency care for children ages 0-6 for a few hours or a few days based on the family's needs. Our primary focus is to keep children safe to provide a supportive solution for families in need. Our services are available at no cost and are judgment-free. Jeremiah's Place understands that the meaning of an emergency varies from family to family. Some families have used us for the following reasons:
- Medical appointments & emergencies
- Funerals
- Domestic violence
- Job interviews
- Respite care
- Labor and delivery
- Job training
- Mental health emergencies
- Military deployment
- Lapses in regular childcare
- Unsafe childcare options
At Jeremiah's Place, our vision is to provide families with support in caring for their young children when they need it most. We hope to create a community that is a safe and nurturing place for all children to thrive.

Jeremiah's Place Strong Family's Team uses a strength-based, trauma-informed approach when working with families, new placement, emergencies, or childcare issues. While our primary method to support families is through providing a safe haven for their children during critical life events, we also recognize the importance of scaffolding parents for long-term success. The Jeremiah's Place staff is trained in trauma-informed care, sensory processing needs, and behavioral concerns.

Serving as a resource for families experiencing emergent situations, we stand in the gap for families as they work to address life’s difficult circumstances. The Strong Family's Team will meet with parents and families to evaluate their needs and develop family goals for resolving emergent needs. The advocate will also connect families with local community resources to help stabilize and sustain them.

Infants and toddlers

Jeremiah's Place seeks to provide universal primary prevention messaging and information about the importance of early childhood, strong families and the reduction of traumatic experiences. Our Strong Families Team participates in community outreach events and sharing information about our services with potential families and other service providers.

Throughout the year, family events with programming, food, activities, and give-aways are planned to provide families the opportunity to spend time together and learn more about the services of Jeremiah's Place.

Every new family leaves with a backpack filled with a "JereBear," blanket, pajamas, books, toothbrush, and toothpaste. Jeremiah's Place also shares the abundance of product donations with our families, including food, clothing, books, diapers, and more.
