New Customer: Crisis Call Center

We are pleased to welcome another new customer to the VisionLink network.  This is the Crisis Call Center of Nevada, established as an outreach effort of the University of Nevada, Reno, due to the high rates of suicide across the state.  The center is supported by individual donations, government sources, corporate and foundation grants and the United Way.

Over the years, Crisis Call Center has developed a number of education and information programs for the purpose of preventing crises, particularly suicide, child and elder abuse, and sexual assault, as well as ongoing support groups for Survivors of Suicide Loss and adult and adolescent victims of Sexual Assault.

Even better, this is being launched as a portal of the existing United Way of Reno / 2-1-1 statewide solution to integrate resources and save money on technology, so that more of the funds can be used to directly support their clients.  This is what a CommunityOS partnership is all about, and we are honored to support this work.

Welcome aboard!
