Family Resource Center Launches New Service

Family Resource Center has hired daytime crisis response staff to respond to local hospitals, schools and other locations in Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties.


The crisis response staff will be present on location within 30-60 minutes after a call is placed. Staff will assist in resolving any crisis situation with the youth and person calling whether that be school or hospital personnel. They will ensure the crisis situation is resolved and will make all needed referrals.
