Addressing Addiction

Local leaders come together to combat opioid crisis in F-M area

At Cass County Electric Cooperative, we do our part to power our communities literally, by providing safe and reliable electricity. However, contributing to a strong and thriving community goes beyond the service we provide. We contribute to local nonprofits, volunteer our time, and strive to spread awareness. When a community suffers, it affects everyone.

FirstLink provides resources for those in need

The various services offered by FirstLink branch out like a tree. There is never a dull moment for the 10 full-time and 10 part-time employees, and there are no two days that are the same. It can be hard to describe the organization to someone unfamiliar with it, but the name FirstLink really says it all.

“Our mission is to link people with resources, 24 hours a day,” says Executive Director Cindy Miller. As simple as the mission sounds, it’s a huge undertaking.
