About Jeremiah’s Place
Jeremiah’s Place is Pittsburgh’s only crisis nursery. We care for children six years old and younger—24 hours a day, 7 days a week—when their parent or guardian is experiencing a crisis or an urgent childcare need and no other safe, reliable childcare option is available. Our trauma-sensitive approach is specifically designed to support children and caregivers who may be experiencing significant stressors such as medical emergencies, homelessness, or domestic violence. Since opening our doors in 2014, we have cared for 1,135 children from over 706 families with diverse backgrounds and from 87 zip codes, free of charge. We are dedicated to the children and families we serve and to the wellbeing of our staff. Jeremiah’s Place believes that diversity and inclusion make us a stronger organization and we are committed to supporting it in every aspect of our work.
