¿Por qué la primera llamada?

First Call’s values of person-centered service, community, collaboration, and kindness are foundational for the agency’s focus on accessibility, commitment to data-driven practice, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as we work toward our mission of reducing the impact of alcohol, drugs, and addiction by providing quality resources to individuals, families, and the community.

Compromiso con la Diversidad

First Call reconoce que el racismo, la discriminación y el estigma sistémicos han impactado la accesibilidad a las herramientas de reducción de daños, los esfuerzos de prevención y el tratamiento de los trastornos por uso de sustancias para las personas, las familias y las comunidades a las que servimos. First Call afirma su responsabilidad continua de construir iniciativas estratégicas y fomentar entornos en los que todas las personas sean respetadas, incluidas y obtengan resultados equitativos.
