Here’s more about the charities:
Parent Wonders
Parent Wonders is a program funded by Illinois State Board of Education through the Regional Office of Education to serve parents with children birth through age five in rural Champaign County school districts. It supports parents and provides opportunities for parents and young children to learn and grow together. Offerings include a variety of parent education programs, from play groups, gym nights, 4-6 week parenting classes to special family activity nights. Baby Club is a tailored program to help meet each baby’s developmental needs in a fun and unique way. At Lunch Bunch, we have lunch, an informal discussion, and create something special while childcare is provided. Parent Wonders also offers a Warm Line for parents of young children who would like to talk about parenting issues and a parent library. A newsletter is published quarterly during the year and mailed to parents with young children who live in rural Champaign County. All programs are free. Free childcare is provided for all classes.

Champaign Crisis Nursery

Crisis Nursery is committed to creating an “Island of Safety” dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect through the provision of emergency intervention, respite care and support to families in crisis.
