Plans to open an Effingham County Crisis Nursery are moving forward. A lease agreement has been reached to have the nursery in the Effingham County Health Department building. The lease is for three years, with the nursery assisting with utility costs at the Health Department as part of the agreement.
The facility will offer 24 hour access to emergency care for children up to the age of six. All services are free; there are no income guidelines or requirements
The Crisis Nursery will open this fall.
