The Children’s Cottage Society strives to prevent abuse and neglect of children. Our Mission statement is “Safe Children in Healthy Families”. The Crisis Nursery offers parents the gift of time to be away from their children as they deal with their crisis, which maybe exhaustion from parenting due to isolation, mental health issues such as postpartum depression, financial burdens, homeless or on the verge of homelessness, child behavior issues to name a few. The child(ren) can stay at the Crisis Nursery for up to 3 days. The service is for children newborn to age 8 years and we have 14 beds at our Bridgeland facility.
The Children’s Cottage has several other programs: Community Infant Respite; Healthy Families; a homeless shelter called Brenda’s House located in Kilarney and a satellite Crisis Nursery in Cranston which is 4 beds for newborn to age 2 years; as well as a large volunteer program.
Even though the Crisis Nursery serves all of Calgary and surrounding areas the main Crisis Nursery is located centrally in Bridgeland. A number of our volunteers and even some staff live in Bridgeland. We participate on the Bridgeland Interagency meetings. When there are community activities for children staff often bring the children to these events.
