Rapid Response Crisis Homes
Alexander provides Rapid Response Crisis Homes in Mecklenburg County to offer brief treatment, structure and supervision to children with serious emotional disturbance. The program also can provide temporary relief to primary caregivers in order to reduce the constant and often stressful care of the child. This periodic service may be provided on either a planned or an emergency basis. In either case, the service is designed to support family stability, prevent abuse and neglect, provide short-term treatment, structure and supervision for the child, provide a therapeutic environment in which to conduct a comprehensive child and family assessment/evaluation, and prevent or minimize the need for lengthier and/or more intensive out-of-home placement.
