The Crisis Nursery in Urbana, IL is a setting in which invaluable services to the community are provided. In an effort to improve the provision of services to clients, the management staff at the Crisis Nursery continues to enter into contests that allow the staff to better serve their clientele. In a recent contest won by the Crisis Nursery, the organization was granted with new office furniture and decor. All of these improvements were made to the offices that house the professional staff who manage fundraising and management. No furniture or technological improvements were added to the office in which parents and children are actually serviced, an office also used by the staff members who actually work face-to-face with children and families. The importance of management and fundraising should not be underrated. However, this is just one example of the unbalanced relationship between the “front office” staff, and the staff who actually serve children and families who are in crisis. Come Christmas, the bonus checks will be given out, yet again they won’t be equal. It is time for the board of directors to wake up and take notice. The Crisis Nursery is entered in another contest. The prizes include printers, copiers and scanners (for the front office of course). Be sure to rush online and vote! It would be great if someone would enter the Crisis Nursery in a contest for new carpet in the bedrooms, just one of the needed additions that would directly benefit the children.
