Inspiring hope and empowering transformation
Crisis Response Network (CRN) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support, resources and resolutions to individuals through a continuum of crisis services.

Organization overview
Since 2007, Crisis Response Network has helped thousands of people and families get connected to the help they need by providing crisis call center services. In just under 10 years, CRN has expanded its services to include a 24-hour peer-run Warm Line, Serious Mental Illness (SMI) determinations, mobile team dispatches, crisis transportation services, emergency room-based assessments, Department of Child Services (DCS) rapid response and crisis stabilization services, telephone follow-ups, tragedy support lines and other in-kind services to the community.

Award recognition
Crisis Response Network recently received the Best in Culture award at the 2016 Call Center Excellence Awards June 28.

The Call Center Week Excellence Awards honor, recognize and promote the most innovative contact center solutions and individuals from the previous year. The awards recognize superior thinking, creativity and execution across the full spectrum of contact center functions.

“This is a great honor for the whole CRN family,” said CRN President and CEO Justin Chase. “The culture of our operation and the environment for our team members is extremely important to us. Our values state that we will work with compassion, effort and ownership in all we do. To be honored this year, and to be a finalist last year, shows that we are living those values on a daily basis.”
