I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you helping me stay in my home and making sure my granddaughter has a safe place to live. I don’t know what I would have done without you. I’m just so grateful to Crisis Clinic for the help I received.

There would be many more people, living lives of significantly less quality in our community if it wasn’t for all the work that you all do. I know that I and many people like me rely on your service and expertise to help people throughout the county. Thank you!
