About the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery
The Crisis Nursery’s vision is to provide immediate refuge for children and support to strengthen families. This evolved from the tragic story of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died from child abuse injuries at the age of two. Following her death, a group of local business people established the Crisis Nursery so that parents would have a safe place to bring their children in the face of crises.

The Chiefs return to Spokane Arena on Friday, November 17 for Fred Meyer Shop With the Chiefs Night as they host the Victoria Royals. Then, the Prince Albert Raiders visit for Washington Healthplanfinder Beanie Giveaway on Saturday, November 18. Both games start at 7:05 p.m.
Tickets for next weekend and all Chiefs’ home game games are available in-person at the Chiefs’ Ticket Office at Spokane Arena, over the phone at 509-535-PUCK and online at spokanechiefs.com.
