Minnesota Recovery Connection (MRC)’s mission is to strengthen the recovery community through peer-to-peer support, public education, and advocacy.

Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery

As a trusted resource for families, the Nursery focuses on prevention by offering free, voluntary services for parents who face barriers such as unemployment, homelessness, medical or mental health concerns, poverty, domestic violence, or other difficult situations.

We help strengthen families by connecting them to resources, caring for their children during difficult times, and setting goals that promote self-sufficiency and make the relationship between the parent and child stronger.

Core services include:

  • 24 hour crisis helpline
  • Crisis counseling
  • Education and connection to community resources
  • Clinical home visiting and mental health program
  • Overnight residential care for parents to place their children voluntarily – newborn through age six – for up to three nights while they address their crisis

We invite parents to come as they are, courageously share their story, and trust that we will work together to make things better.
