Dear Crisis Liners,
Hope you all are having a great week! It has been great to start getting to know some of you! In case we haven’t met, I’m Stephanie, the newest member of the crisis intervention team. I have worked at Middle Way House for almost two years as a legal advocate at the Protective Order Assistance Partnership in the Clerk’s Office before coming into the CI program. I have also worked as a volunteer and staff person at the Rise and Shine daycare. I’m a social worker and I love cats (I have two!). Another fun fact: I am Amanda’s sister! Please don’t hesitate to come talk to me (even if the door is closed). I will try my best to always say Hi and check in when you get in the office!
Here is a cute picture of a cat for y’all!

“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.

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

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.
