Crisis hotline faces crisis on election night, lacks resources for future

HYATTSVILLE–On a normal night the Community Crisis Services, Inc. in Prince George’s County handles about 50 calls. On election night in November, that number exploded to 450 calls. And the hotline says while they’re down from that number, the calls coming in are still higher than usual and they’re concerned about being able to provide adequate help when the next crisis hits.
