The Child Crisis Center of El Paso operates for the prevention of child abuse and neglect in El Paso, TX. We take in children from birth through 12 years of age whose parents are temporarily unable to care for them due to personal problems. We are the "friendly neighbor" or family that may not be available to these parents. We operate 24/7 and there is no charge for our services. Our center has been in operation for 26 years. We were the first crisis nursery in the state of Texas. We have other programs as well as our crisis nursery and emergency shelter.
