Crisis Nurseries Legislation

AB 2228 (Cooley) – Support Enrolled on August 26, 2014  

AB 2228, by Assembly Member Ken Cooley, would require crisis nurseries to be licensed by the State Department of Social Services to operate overnight programs and would authorize crisis nurseries to provide crisis day services. AB 2228 would also establish the maximum licensed capacity for a crisis residential overnight program at 14 children and establish that the maximum licensed capacity for crisis day services is based on 35 square feet of activity space per child.

Crisis nurseries provide short-term care and supervision for children under six years of age who are voluntarily placed for temporary care by a parent or legal guardian due to a family crisis or stressful situation. This bill ensures the safety and well-being of these young children, who require proper supervision and adequate space in a high-quality supervised environment. 
CSAC supports AB 2228, which enrolled and awaits the Governor’s action.
