Dear Crisis Liners,
I hope everyone’s week is going well! We are welcoming our new CISC this week, Selina! She will be around the office at varying hours next week so make sure that you say “Hi!” when you see her. We want her to feel super welcome as the newest member of our CI team.
Our fall crisis line schedule is starting on Monday (August 20). I look forward to meeting all the folks on the schedule that I haven’t met yet. If you haven’t signed up on the schedule yet, there’s still time to pick up a shift. We’d love to have you!
Crisis Line Schedules
We can always use all the help we can get. If you haven’t signed up for a crisis line shift, it would be so appreciated!

Fiesta del Otoño – Tabling Request for Volunteers!
Any volunteers who are interested in tabling for MWH at this event, we would love the help. We are particularly intersted in anyone who speaks Spanish. Please see the message below for information.
“This year the city of Bloomington will celebrate its 13th Annual Fiesta del Otoño on Saturday, September 15 from 10am-1pm at Showers Plaza City Hall 401 N Morton St. In conjunction with the Bloomington Community Farmer’s Market. This year’s theme for Fiesta del Otoño is “Celebrando Nuestras Raíces, Nuestra Herencia, Nuestra Fuerza – Celebrating Our Roots, Our Heritage, Our Strength”.
We invite organizations from the community to provide information about their organization to the Latino and Hispanic community. Please respond to this email no later than Friday August 17th, if your organization is interested in participating in this exciting community event by hosting a resource table. A table and two chairs will be provided.
Fiesta Del Otoño is a campus-community collaboration between the City of Bloomington Latino Program and Outreach Division and Indiana University’s Latino Enhancement Cooperative to celebrate the National Hispanic Heritage Month (NHHM). NHHM is celebrated throughout the country in the months of September and October. Fiesta del Otoño both educates and provides festive activities for all to enjoy and we encourage local organizations to show their support by hosting a resource table for the event.” – Josefa Luce
If you are interested, please email our communications coordinator, Sarah Hunt, to let her know. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crisis Line Online Resources!
We now have a working online folder of Crisis Line resources!! For those of you who prefer to pull things up on a computer when your helping a client, or prefer reading reminders online you can use the link below. 🙂 If you prefer hard copies, and using the binders in the office, don’t worry! This online folder is not meant to replace those resources, it’s just in addition! Let a CI staff member know if you have any questions.
