The Reader’s Digest reports on the Crisis Response Team with an in-depth interview of Program Director, Joe Avalos. In the interview, Joe recounts a 2012 CRT response to fatal traffic collision that killed two people. “We wake up at all hours of the night to be with people at the worst moment of their lives,” Joe says in the interview.
The article continues by explaining how the CRT assists the police, fire and other first responders during these types of incidents.
LA Times spent a few nights with our CRT volunteers to get an idea what it’s like providing support for individuals in need.
Many thanks to Soumya Karlamangla for coming out and meeting the team.
