Mission: Infant Crisis Services provides life sustaining formula, food and diapers to babies and toddlers in times of crisis…Because no baby should go hungry.
Vision: Infant Crisis Services provides life sustaining formula and food as well as diapers and clothing for babies and toddlers in time of crisis. Our employees and volunteers provide education, emotional support and guidance to the families we are privileged to serve. Each individual is treated with compassion, respect and without judgment. Infant Crisis Services serves as a link to connect families with other helping agencies in addition to programs leading to self-sufficiency. As responsible stewards, we are loyal to our mission while serving the last, least and littlest.
Infant Crisis Services, Inc. began in 1984 as a Sunday school service project at Westminster Presbyterian Church. The agency was housed, for the first ten years, in the back of the 2nd Presbyterian Church at NW 10th and McKinley. In April 1995, the organization relocated to a free-standing building located at NW 39th and Pennsylvania. Infant Crisis Services quickly outgrew that space, and in February 2009, through a generous gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the organization moved into its current location at 4224 N. Lincoln Blvd.
The current location, known as the Donald W. Reynolds Center, is a 17,000 square foot facility that houses the administrative offices, warehouse and client services operations.
In 2013, Infant Crisis Services took its mission on wheels, launching the BabyMobile, the first mobile food, diaper and formula pantry in Oklahoma. Each week, the BabyMobile travels to various locations around central Oklahoma, assisting clients in under-served or under-privileged communities.
