Jeremiah's Place

The community's first crisis nursery is now open for 24/7 child care - all day and all night! Call us at 412-924-0726.

We are open to all children ages 6 and under for free, temporary short-term care when families are in crises or experiencing an emergency situation and need safe care for their children. We look forward to serving the needs of all families when they have no other safe option for childcare.


We are located at 6435 Frankstown Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206 in the Kingsley Center building. Call us at 412-924-0726 or email us at for details.

Our mission is to provide a therapeutic refuge of rest, health, safety and psycho-social renewal for children and their families during times of crisis.
