Every week, over 150 volunteers help out around Crisis Nursery. Volunteers assist in numerous ways, from caring for the children at the Nursery alongside staff, to tending the beautiful flowers in our gardens, or even helping out as a board member spreading the Nursery's mission through the community. All that happens at Crisis Nursery every day of the year is possible only with the help of our many outstanding volunteers who selflessly give their time to help the Nursery fulfill its mission of preventing child abuse and neglect in Champaign County. In fiscal year 2015, volunteers provided the Nursery with over 16,000 hours of service. Thank you, volunteers!

We are excited to introduce a new, monthly Volunteer Spotlight to recognize some of our wonderful volunteers. Everyone at Crisis Nursery would like to say thank you to Christina Parks, our Volunteer of the Month for July! She has been volunteering at the Nursery for the past three months and has already made a big impact. Nursery staff nominated Christina because she’s great at interacting with the children and she’s willing to fill in when extra help is needed. 

When Christina was nominated as Volunteer of the Month, we asked her a few questions so we could get to know her a little better. Introducing... 



Christina decided to volunteer at the Nursery because she wanted to fill her spare time with something rewarding.

Her favorite vacation was to Las Vegas for her best friend’s wedding.

She has 2 dogs and 2 cats.

The one food she can’t live without is cheese!

Her favorite TV show is “The Office.”


Thanks again to Christina and to all of our amazing volunteers!
