The S. L. Gimbel Foundation has granted Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center $24,960 to fund its on-site employment support to help people get and keep good jobs. The program includes individual and group sessions, peer encouragement and support, mock interviews, resume writing, job search efforts, lessons in work place etiquette, access to work clothes and engaging employers to consider hiring people served by Grassroots. Partners include community agencies that can complement the services that Grassroots provides its residents.
Grassroots provides the county’s only emergency shelter and 24-hour crisis intervention services. Professional crisis counselors staff Grassroots’ 24-hour hotline; see walk-in clients in need of immediate counseling; operate the Mobile Crisis Team, which responds to community emergencies, and manage the county’s emergency shelter for homeless men, women and families.
