Stephen Center Teams Up with First Responders to Create “Crisis Cards”
Stephen Center (stephencenter.org) has created what is known as “crisis cards” by teaming up with first responders to create a comprehensive list of local organizations best suited to address crises homeless and impoverished people face. The crisis cards include the web addresses, phone numbers, and locations of organizations that specialize in assisting impoverished people.
While there are a multitude of nonprofits that serve impoverished people in and around Omaha, many people are unaware of their options due to a lack of access to the necessary means of finding said nonprofits. The crisis cards give first responders and organizations who deal with impoverished populations a convenient way of finding help they need.
Stephen Center has printed and distributed 2,000 copies of the first iteration of the crisis cards and hopes that other community partners and sponsors will collaborate with them on future iterations. Their goal is to multiply circulation of the cards to whatever degree is necessary to meet the needs of low income and homeless people in Omaha and surrounding communities.
Located in South Omaha, Stephen Center is a sober campus of resources for mental health and addiction services. The clients they serve are the homeless, addicted, and those in poverty. Their campus includes a homeless emergency shelter, inpatient/outpatient addiction treatment, and permanent supportive housing apartments for disabled and low-income individuals.
