Places for People makes a life saving tool more accessible

When a new employee starts at Places for People, one of the items on his or her orientation checklist is CPR certification. One day soon, new employees will learn another lifesaving measure, too – how to administer Narcan. “It’s such a powerful life saving tool.”

Places for People provides an unparalleled toolkit of programs, services, and resources for people living with mental illnesses and substance use disorders, typically accompanied by complex and multilayered challenges: chronic homelessness, primary health disorders, and trauma. Our mission is to provide caring, effective services to help those with the greatest challenges recover from mental illness, substance use disorders and associated chronic illnesses.
