What We Do

Kids in Crisis provides 24-hour support to help children and families resolve conflict. Crisis Counselors work through any situation and meet face-to-face for intervention and assistance. For those who need more than short-term counseling, Kids in Crisis offers its two emergency shelters in Cos Cob, both licensed by the State of Connecticut: the Crisis Nursery for infants and young children and the Teen House for adolescents. These homes, complete with a fully-staffed, state-of-the-art medical clinic, provide therapeutic care in a safe, nurturing environment for up to 20 children at any one time.

Additionally, Kids in Crisis provides prevention programs throughout Fairfield County, Connecticut. The prevention programs include SafeTalk, a series of workshops for elementary schools, which teaches children to be safe from bullying and abuse, and TeenTalk, which offers student outreach counselors to area high schools to help adolescents with personal and family pressures.
