We are back to meeting clients in person via CMSAC and some public places. We also have a few alternatives to receiving services for the time being. These alternatives include phone counseling and crisis support sessions, video call counseling and crisis support sessions, or cancelling scheduled appointments and rescheduling at a later time. We do require all community members and professionals to wear a mask and complete a COVID screening when entering the building. We are unsure of how long this policy will be in effect, but will continue to keep you informed as we learn more about the spread of COVID-19, per the CDC’s guidelines. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html
If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, it is critical to consult with your healthcare provider or get a free COVID-19 test through CentraCare. You can call (320) 200-3200 or check out their website: https://www.centracare.com/about-us/news-publications/covid-19/.
We are committed to providing quality 24/7 crisis line services to anyone affected by sexual violence within our community. We can be reached on our 24/7 crisis line at (320) 251-4357. In addition, if you, your client, or someone you know is in need of medical services following a sexual assault, please reach out to our crisis line to consult about your medical options.
CMSAC has been experiencing a high volume of calls on our crisis line. While we strive to provide high quality advocacy services in a timely matter, we realize some of our callers might be put on hold for longer periods of time before getting connected to an advocate. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have on our callers. We truly care and are here to listen! You WILL be connected to an advocate, it just might take a little longer.
