La Causa’s Crisis Nursery and Respite Center is the only center of its kind in southeastern Wisconsin. We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide care for children from birth to 12 years of age in a safe, free, nurturing place during times of family emergency/crisis, high parental stress or need for respite care. Our services are totally free of charge.

Since 1990, our Crisis Nursery & Respite Center has helped thousands of parents keep their children safe in times of crisis. Watch the video below to learn more about us, or read the story of one woman who relied on our center during a difficult period in her life.


Who We Serve:

  • In 2011, 900 children from birth to age 12 received crisis or respite care at the Crisis Nursery & Respite Center
  • More than 90 percent of these children lived in households earning less than $12,000 a year


  • We're excited to break ground in 2012 on our new and improved state-of-the-art building.  We invite you to join us by investing in a future free from child abuse.

If you are in need of respite or crisis care for your child, call us at (414) 647-5990. We are in Walker's Point in Milwaukee and are open 24 hours a day.
