Message from Board of Directors

At the Mini O'Beirne Crisis Nursery, we believe strong families build strong communities. But you cannot have a strong community with racism. The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many other African Americans are a terrible reminder of the inequality that still exists in our country. Unfortunately, many of the families we meet and who receive our services live with the effects of this inequality every day.

Here at the "Happy Blue House", our volunteers, staff, and board members work hard to not make assumptions or pass judgement on anyone we encounter. We do our best to treat everyone with the dignity and respect every person deserves. We are committed to building a future, both inside and outside our walls, that is more diverse, community driven and equitable for all.

To our staff, volunteers, supporters, community members and all those receiving our services:

We hear you. We see you. We support you.
