Dance!! & Eat Tacos, a benefit to support a local crisis care program, was held at the Maltese Saturday night.

The fundraiser included a taco bar courtesy of a nearby restaurant, Tacos Borrego, and live DJ music.

The purpose of this event was to help support the local organization Crisis Care Advocacy and Triage (CCAT).

Established a few years ago, the CCAT assists individuals struggling with issues such as addiction, homelessness and mental illness, according to founder Lisa Currier.

Using a “wrap-around effect,” Currier said, the organization identifies the core issues of every client’s unique situation and builds a support plan to rectify the problem with the support of local resources.

Currier expressed concern that there is not enough community action to support those in need of immediate assistance, but they aim to change that.

“We want to see boots on the ground,” Currier said. “We need to revolutionize the way we do social services in our community.”

Funds collected will help Currier and her staff achieve this goal.
