Responding to Youth in Crisis
The Daytime Crisis Worker position at the Family Resource Center was designed to respond on-site to schools and hospitals in Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties who have youth who are experiencing a crisis.
The response could be a direct interaction with the youth or it might involve working with the school personnel to help address a “crisis situation.” The Crisis Worker will strive to de-escalate the crisis with the youth and/or school personnel. They will also link the youth to any resources or treatment needed.
Schools and hospitals have direct access to the Crisis Worker by contacting our HOPEline at 800-567-HOPE (4673).
