Emergency Community Support

Emergency Community Support is a service offered to consumers in crisis to connect them with the appropriate level of care.

The goal of the service is to stabilize consumers and connect them to the services they need to live in the community of their choice.

Emergency Community Support workers meet consumers where they are and work to stabilize crisis.  Consumers and their workers will work together to set and meet goals and transition to a lower level of care.
