The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) recently presented a $5,000 check to Crisis Intervention of Houston, Inc. Crisis Intervention of Houston’s main purpose can be found within their mission, “help people in crisis.” Over the past 20 years, Crisis Intervention of Houston (CIH) has helped over 2 million people, and with the FBJSL’s Community Assistance Funds grant, CIH will continue their efforts and growth in the Fort Bend area.
CIH’s 24 hour hotline services teens and residents with a crisis councilor on call, and in addition, CIH also provides counseling, referrals, and emergency transportation to name a few of their 24 hour on call services. These funds will go towards CIH’s efforts to provide a more improved service to their already existing service for Fort Bend. The allocation of these funds will promote three programs including support groups and crisis training.
FBJSL accepts CAF applications throughout the year for grant funding up to $5,000 per year. Applicants must be nonprofit organizations serving Fort Bend County with requests to fund a critical need, pilot program and/or expand a significant service to the community.
