If you haven’t heard of the Crisis Center, here is a little information about the organization and what they do for the entire Johnson County area:

What We Do
A crisis can be anything – problems with family or friends, lack of food, financial emergency, divorce, serious illness, roommate trouble, school-related stress, substance abuse struggles, suicidal feelings… the list is endless. Or it could be a series of small problems that together have become overwhelming.
We Can Help
When any situation has become too difficult for you to cope with alone, we can help. Everyone at The Crisis Center is passionate about treating those in crisis as valuable human beings.
The Crisis Center provides immediate support through our Crisis Intervention, Food Bank & Emergency Assistance, and Community Intervention Programs.
- 24-Hour Crisis Line – emotional support, information, referrals by phone
- Crisis Chat – online emotional support, information and referrals
- Food Bank – weekly supplemental food
- Emergency Assistance – limited financial assistance to avoid eviction or loss of utilities

Also, DID YOU KNOW that in addition to new items, the Crisis Center Food Bank is able to accept open packages of diapers that your child has grown out of? They can also accept opened bottles of detergent and other hygiene and cleaning products…so maybe someone in your house had an allergic reaction, but you don’t want to throw away those items. Good news: you can donate them! They also accept UNOPENED cans of formula and baby food…this is a perfect place to donate those formula samples you’re not using or baby food your child didn’t like!!
So gather up a few items, purchase your ticket, and we’ll see you at the Mom’s Night Out on June 3rd!! We can’t wait to meet you!
