DESC is in the process of informing neighbors and interested members of the community about the new Crisis Solutions Center under development at 1600 South Lane Street. This program aims to divert individuals impacted by mental illness and substance abuse from jails and hospitals, by providing a more appropriate therapeutic alternative.
They are hosting an informational meeting next week about this project: Tuesday, November 9, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, at the Giddens School, 620 20th Ave. South. Staff will be present to answer questions and concerns about the project.
For more information, please also see their webpage: http://desc.org/crisis_solutions.html, or the attached letter from Bill Hobson, Executive Director of DESC.
