Partnership for Assertive Community Support Services
We provide PACSS services in partnership with Region Ten Community Services Board.
Together we provide intensive street outreach and engagement services. We take it
to the streets to meet individual needs for treatment, recovery, and support. Persons
involved in PACSS services have typically not responded well to traditional supports
or interventions and they usually need more intensive services than the center alone
Our PACSS staff personally attends to the needs of many. They provide positive social
interaction with those who need that extra helping hand; to get food, services, or
maybe just a willing ear to listen over a cup of coffee. PACSS is a necessary and
vital part of our consumer outreach system.
