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.

Project Respect is a community and school-based program that works with students, teachers, parents, and community members to promote respect, tolerance, and social responsibility.

Project Respect helps to create a safe community environment of mutual support, kindness, and respect by 1) teaching children social and emotional skills; 2) supporting teachers, parents, and other adults; and 3) engaging community members to be part of the solution.  Bullying is not just a school problem- the whole community must be engaged to promote peace and end bullying.

OUR STRATEGIES:

  • Skills and Support for Children: Elementary and Middle school students learn about and practice respectful relationships and how to safely intervene in bullying situations.  Project Respect uses the nationally recognized bullying prevention curriculum Steps to Respect and Second Step.  We are also using “Let’s Get Real” in select middle school classrooms.
  • Training and Support for Adults: Teachers, school staff, and parents receive the support they need to respond sensitively and consistently to bullying.  Project Respect also works with administrators to strengthen practices, policies, and resolutions that support a safe school environment.
  • Community Engagement: A public awareness campaign “Bullying…It’s Just Not Cool” features posters, banners, bumper stickers, newspaper ads, and more to encourage everyone to take action to prevent bullying.  Project Respect also works with a range of community partners to promote peace.
