Bay Area Crisis Nursery (BACN)

In our continuing support for the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, we donated 20 packs of underwear (mostly 3-5 pairs per pack) and 34 packs of socks (2-10 pairs /pack), 6 rolls of wrapping paper and some boxes and 2 tubes of Desitin during our Moms' Holiday Dinner and our Breakfast with Santa.  Thank you CCPOM Members!  As you may know BACN takes in children when their parent(s) are in a crisis and need some time. You can donate directly if you would like. BACN is in need of new Christmas gift wrapping paper, boxes, ribbons, scotch tape, gift boxes, tissue paper, gift bags, etc.  They accept donations 8:00am - 8:00 pm seven days a week.  Please call them if you can help at (925) 685-8052.

Underwear and Socks 

On October 7, CCPOM donated a grand total of $2400 to Bay Area Crisis Nursery. This donation includes money raised from at the 2013 Spring Convention which CCPOM hosted and money raised from our 2014 Spring Bingo Night.  We asked our CCPOM members to vote, and you voted for BACN.  These donations are the result of a huge amount of work from the Convention team, chaired by Heidi Johnson and Karis Coleman-Sink, and last May's Bingo Night hosted by Heather Dupree.  Way to go CCPOM!

"The Bay Area Crisis Nursery, establish 1981 is the only residential crisis nursery in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.  BACN is a PEOPLE helping PEOPLE organization supporting those parents who really want to help themselves.  We believe that seeking help before a child is abused is a positive, proactive parenting skill. Parents learn to recognize situations that lead to loss of control.and place their children in a safe environment while they deal with the crisis.  Our outcomes are whole and healthy families with improved coping and parenting skills, and children free of abuse."  If you are unfamiliar with BACN, we recommend you visit their website.  Their cause will touch your heart!
