In light of the continuous crimes occurring within our families and across the community, the Families First! Office is urging people to reach out in times of crisis, and to continue to reach out until help is received.

"There are individuals and organizations that are ready to assist. The following numbers will be answered by a person who knows best how to help you cope with the stressors of life. Please call yourself, or if you know of a family member, a colleague, a classmate, a neighbor who needs help, please call for them. We must take care of each other," urges Senator Yamashita.
