Emergency Resources

As the call for abolishing the police and divesting into our community grows, the need for alternative resources does as well. Here is a list of emergency resources as an alternative to police intervention. This list is not complete and will continue to grow as we do. If you know of a service or organization that would be a valuable resource for the community please reach out to us to add them to the list. 

*if you are in need of emergency medical care please call 911*
