Abstract:  This report describes the operation of an "integrated, comprehensive emergency intervention service." This service fields staff in emergency situations primarily during those days and hours when the rest of the service system is closed. The staff both refer and provide emergency funds, counselling; and accommodation to a wide variety of people in need. The board of the service includes those Regina organisations that see such a service as useful. The report includes a description of staff deployment, the kinds of services offered, and a comparison with a similar Edmonton service. Also included is data on the nature of the operation over the 1975 year. The report could be seen as quite dry and detailed. However, it does describe a basic street level service that responds to a variety of needs after regular service hours. The intervention of Mobile Family Service Society helps those who might otherwise be arrested. (eg. transients or quarrelling families) to use the service system more to their advantage when they need the service.
