Crisis Resource & Advocacy

The Moab Valley Multicultural Center provides bilingual crisis intervention and advocacy services for anyone with socioeconomic, cultural, or language barriers with particular emphasis on immigrant, minority, indigenous, and vulnerable populations of all ages. With an increasing minority/immigrant population and over half of Moab’s population living at or below the federal poverty line, there is great need for a safe place for marginalized and vulnerable people to go when they find themselves in or facing crisis.

Families or individuals experiencing crisis may walk-in or make an appointment and receive a family-friendly, confidential, and professional assessment of their needs and a follow-up plan for resolution. The MVMC utilizes local and statewide partners and resources to create the most comprehensive and efficient plan for assistance or referral for the following kinds of issues:

  • Family or parenting concerns
  • Medical or mental health concerns
  • Joblessness or homelessness
  • Food insecurity
  • Legal or immigration concerns
  • Domestic violence or sexual assault
  • Substance abuse
  • Discrimination or harassment

In providing individualized help by a team of caring and professional advocates, we aim to empower the disenfranchised and vulnerable by increasing accessibility and utilization of our community resources, making our community a safe and inclusive place for everyone.
