Message regarding COVID-19

As of March 19, 2020
In order to do our part in protecting vulnerable populations and to slow the transmission of COVID-19, many programs of the Alliance will be limiting in-person contact during the crisis. This has not been an easy decision, but we want to ensure everyone that services will still be provided to anyone that needs them.

Mountain Crisis Services will be limiting in person services for survivors at our office. Some in-person appointments will be necessary and will be scheduled by staff. Our hotline will be operational 24/7, our domestic violence shelter is still operating, and all counseling will be done via telephone or through video-based services. Legal Advocacy will still be available and advocates will still accompany survivors to court.

The Alliance provides services to some of the most vulnerable people in our community and we will continue throughout this crisis. We are working diligently to ensure our staff are supported during this time so that we can continue to offer these vital services. We look forward to when our services can resume without restrictions and we will continue to make changes as things evolve. Feel free to reach out to any of our programs to learn how to access services or how you can be a support during this time.

Transitional Housing

Since 2012 Mountain Crisis has offered a transitional Housing Program. The housing shelters victims/survivors of domestic violence and their children. Participants can participate in the program for up to two years while receiving case-management and developing a service plan concentrating on obtaining goals in self-sufficiency, increasing skills and/or income, and obtaining safe affordable permanent housing.

Participants attend individual counseling coupled with support groups on varying topics such as: life skills, domestic violence education, budgeting, drug and alcohol support, parenting, and co-dependency.

Program fees (rent) are 30% of monthly income. Participants that successfully complete the program will receive 20% of their program fees back which can be used toward permanent housing.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must have verified income
  • Must be a victim of domestic violence and/or sexual assault
