Emergency Receiving Home (ERH) Program

A contracted service, the Emergency Receiving Home/Crisis Intervention Hotline provides protective services seven days a week, 24 hours a day, ensuring that elderly and adults with disabilities have access to APS services at all times. Availability of the Emergency Receiving Home has proven essential to the safety of victims of serious abuse and neglect. The Shelter affords clients the opportunity to escape an abusive situation in an emergency. Without the shelter, clients of APS would have to remain in the abusive situation until other living arrangements can be made.
