Cumberland County received a $13.1 million dollar grant from Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) and an additional $2 million in reinvestment funds from HealthChoices to create a Crisis Walk-In Center that will serve residents in Cumberland, Perry, and Dauphin Counties.
The counties created a Request for Proposal (RFP) that was sent out to potential providers who have the potential to complete this type of work. The walk-in center will be a fixed location where people who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis can go for immediate support and treatment.
The center will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The RFP was sent out to potential providers on July 11, 2023.
