Crisis Line and Referral Service volunteers are ready to listen


Oftentimes, the sheriff’s office receives questions regarding what services are available in the time of personal crisis or when things are just not going well and you may need someone to talk to.

Cass County residents are fortunate to have the assistance of the Crisis Line and Referral Service located in Brainerd available to them. The Crisis Line is often the connection or the “someone” you can turn to when “nobody” understands or when “everyone” is too busy to listen.
