SAFETY AND CRISIS INTERVENTION

The Junior League of Birmingham recognizes safety and crisis intervention as an integral factor of the well-being of our community.  We believe prevention, preparedness, and readiness are critical to ensuring successful response and intervention regardless of the situation.  The Junior League of Birmingham, therefore, is committed to developing, implementing, and supporting initiatives that address and accomplish the following:
