The Parenting Time Program at New Horizons Crisis Center is designed to help families as they go through difficult and/or transitional times.
We provide a positive, safe, neutral and interactive location for children to spend time with their non-residential parent without being in the middle of conflicts. Through this Program, children have an opportunity to maintain a relationship with both parents. Our number one priority is for the emotional and physical health and well being of the children.
The Program serves families in Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, and Redwood counties through court orders and referrals. Other counties and voluntary parents are welcome contingent upon availability.
Parents must comply with all court orders and the policies and procedures of the Program and respect their children’s rights and feelings.

When parents find themselves in crisis, they may be temporarily unable to care for their children. Crisis Nursery provides short-term, nurturing care 24-hours a day, 365 days a year to children ages six weeks to twelve, among other services and resources.
We know that parenting is a difficult job and every parent needs help at times. We also know that not every family has resources to get help. Crisis Nursery can be a resource. Crisis Nursery can provide for a child’s safety and well-being, while the parent takes time to deal with the crisis.
We understand that each family has their own unique needs. Through an intake process, family needs are assessed and goals and objectives are developed so parents can work to alleviate the crisis they are facing. Support services provided to families include:
Other services may be available upon request to meet individual family needs.
Although a crisis can be different for each family, some examples include:
Crisis nursery placements, at a minimum, take up to three hours to arrange. Placements are also contingent on availability of crisis care providers.
