Beginning Wednesday a new partnership is bringing a mobile crisis intervention team to Springfield and Glenwood.
Since 1989, White Bird in Eugene has operated two CAHOOTS vans. It stands for Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets.
Paid for with a grant from Lane County, there will be one CAHOOTS van dedicated to serving those in need in Springfield and Glenwood. The van is staffed with a mental health crisis worker and an emergency medical technician.
Niel Laudati is Spokesman for the City of Springfield.
