The Child Crisis Center of El Paso(CCCEP) main program is the Circle of Love Nursery and Children’s Shelter, which provides 24/7 emergency shelter for up to 31 children, ages newborn through 13 years for families experiencing a crisis.
Services may include critical need for parental stress relief, parent/sibling hospitalization, an incarcerated parent, a parent being admitted into an alcohol/drug rehabilitation program, homelessness, deportation, a temporary Child Protective Placement (CPS), and/or utilities disconnect).
