Funds raised will help support…
The Mobile Crisis Team
This team provides a rapid on call service. The team consists of mental health professionals. This effort will reduce barriers and provide on site assessment, timely coordination and appropriate services. By providing individuals with an on call behavioral health intervention, we can not only significantly reduce unnecessary Baker acts, but also, provide appropriate and timely assessment, intervention and engagement. Highly trained and specialized mobile crisis unit will assist in managing crisis situations in an effective, holistic and humane manner.
LGBT Transitional Home
“Home isn't where you're from, it's where you find light when all grows dark.” Many LGBTQ youth have the added layer of trauma that comes with being rejected or mistreated because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. This transitional housing program will empower the young men and women with the tools needed to live independently. The importance of having a secure environment to call home can not be overstated. Our unique transitional housing model will encourage the growth of independent, positive, and productive adult community members.
