Crisis Center Receives Pete Fisher Humanitarian Award

The Alachua County Crisis Center is honored and elated to receive the Pete Fisher Humanitarian Award from the Florida Counseling Association. Named after the former President of the Florida Counseling Association and the Founder of the Peer Counseling Program at the University of Central Florida, this award recognizes a significant contribution to the betterment of humanity and the human condition.

“We are very proud of this richly deserved award. Our community is so fortunate to have a resource like the Crisis Center,” commented Alachua County Commission Chair Ken Cornell. “If you or someone you know needs help, please call the Crisis Line at 352-264-6789.”
