Crisis Assistance

Crisis Assistance

For the past many years, ISW Crisis Committee has been providing assistance to community members who are facing difficult situations. We have helped families, couples and children through serious illnesses, death in the family, disputes and divorces, domestic violence and various other challenging times. The committee has helped them in the form of providing contacts with legal and medical professionals, sharing information regarding legal and social resources, providing occasional companionship, driving clients to doctors office as well as courts and grocery shopping.

The mission of ISW crisis committee is to help you in your time of need. You may need guidance or a person to talk to. It may even be a more serious situation such as bereavement, divorce, or domestic violence.

Do you feel alone and helpless?

Do not feel as though you are alone. We are just a phone call away. We have helped many people through all kinds of crises. All information about you is kept confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside of the committee without your permission.

We are a small committee comprised of 6 to 8 members.

We will guide you and help in any way possible.
