Sigma Omicron Chapter at University of Illinois

Kappa Delta

Crisis Nursery

The Sigma Omicron chapter is a proud supporter of a local organization, Crisis Nursery.

Crisis Nursery creates an "Island of Safety" dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect by providing 24-hour emergency care for children and support to strengthen families in crisis.
Crisis Nursery is the only emergency-based child care facility open 24 hours, 365 days a year for the entire community to access with no fees or income eligibility. Besides safe shelter for children, ages birth through six, we also provide family support and parenting education to strengthen parent skills and confidence. 

We are proud to be able to raise money, as well as have several members volunteer at Crisis Nursery on a regular basis. Our chapter hosts an annual Shamrock Week that benefits Crisis Nursery. Last year we were able to raise close to $25,000.
