What are they?

under six years old who are placed for temporary care by a parent

due to a family crisis or a stressful situation, for no more than 30 days. Or who are temporarily placed by a county child services agency for no more

than 14 days.

Specific Types/ Needs For Them

Children in these centers may be here for a variety of reasons. Like, going through abuse, unsafe situations, a parent or sibling's illness or death, or the parent is not able to provide food or shelter.
