SPRINGFIELD -- A facility that helps children in the Ozarks held an open house Saturday.
Isabel's House Crisis Nursery provides short term care for children from birth thru 12 whose families are under stress. From homelessness to drugs to emergencies, Isabel's House provides a safe place for kids to stay.
Usually on lockdown, the doors were open to the public to see how donates help make a difference in a young person's life.
Isabel's House opened in 2007 and has helped more than 1,800 children. The facility says thanks to donations it's saved the state $11-million for alternative child care.
