If you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1. For a mental health emergency, call the 24/7 Access Line at 888-868-1649.

Feel free to connect with any of these community resources such as food banks and local, state and federal agencies.

The Community Wellness Team connects community members experiencing or recovering from a high stress event such as a natural disaster or a mass casualty to resources that are best suited for the person and situation. Occasionally community members are in need of additional connections to ensure that other basic needs such as food, lodging and documentation are met. Below are some links to key resources at the local, state and federal level.
