Sobering Center seeks board members

Thursday, July 29, 2021 by Tai Moses

If you have experience or a background in social work, behavior health, addiction medicine, fundraising, grant management, or community advocacy, the Travis County Commissioners Court invites you to apply to serve on the board of directors of the Sobering Center. According to the county’s announcement, the Sobering Center “is a physically safe place for acutely intoxicated persons to be cared for while they sober. It is meant to provide publicly intoxicated persons an alternative option to incarceration and the emergency room.” Four members of the nine-member board are appointed by the Travis County Commissioners Court, four by Austin City Council, and one consensus candidate is jointly appointed by the county and the city.
