The event was a tremendous success, raising thousands of dollars to support the lifesaving services provided by the Metro Crisis Line. Because of the generosity of our many sponsors, all costs for Hope Floats were completely underwritten, allowing every dollar donated through duck adoptions to directly benefit the Metro Crisis Line!
We were overwhelmed by the support Hope Floats received in its inaugural year. You helped show our community and the thousands of individuals and families that call the Metro Crisis Line each year that hope really does float! Check out pictures from this year's event.
We look forward to making an even bigger splash next year!
Key Mental Health Bill Passes in Colorado Legislature
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) is committed to enhancing the State's behavioral health crisis intervention services, as provided in Senate Bill 13-266. In July, CDHS released a set of Request for Proposals (RFP) in search of providers for a statewide hotline/warmline, crisis stabilization units, mobile crisis units and crisis respite services. MCS submitted a proposal for the statewide hotline/warmline component as our current expertise, services, and outcomes are aligned with those of the statewide hotline/warmline requirements.
At MCS, we understand the value of an effective 24/7 hotline and would be proud to add a warmline to our program. A warmline is answered by trained peers with life experience and would be a definite asset to our community. Regardless of the State's provider selection, I am most pleased that effective January 1, 2014, there will many more options for each of us and our families in Colorado who are in need of 24/7 mental health and substance abuse help and support! Thank you for the many community partners that contributed to the strength of our proposal!
