The SSPC (Saskatoon Society for the Protection of Children) provides services to children and families that will allow for safety of children and healthy development of families. We do this under our two programs: the Crisis Nursery and Parent Aide.
Who We Are

Crisis Nursery

The Crisis Nursery is a home away from home for children whose families encounter crises of varying degrees. If there is no alternate care available, parents may leave their children at the Nursery while the problem is being resolved.

The Crisis Nursery provides a free service to all Saskatoon and area families in crisis.

What We Do

Parent Aide

The Parent Aide Program focuses on maintaining the family unit and the well-being of children through enhancing family wellness and reuniting children in care with their families.

Parent Aides go directly into homes and assist families with child development, parenting skills, communication skills, and becoming aware of community resources.

The Parent Aide Program is fully funded through the Ministry of Social Services. Alternatively, the Crisis Nursery is only partially funded by the Ministry of Social Services. As such, the Nursery relies on community donations and fundraising activities to help fund the 24/7, 365 day Crisis Nursery Program.

Please help us continue to assist those children in need here in Saskatoon.
