“This is an outstanding community collaboration,” said County Commissioner Bill Hall “We have state, regional, county and city agencies; faith-based programs; and private non-profits, all coming together to offer help to individuals and families in crisis. It’s supported by the generosity of many local individuals and businesses, as well as hundreds of hours of volunteer time.”
