The Reid Health Community Benefit program has awarded nearly $182,000 in grants to nine area agencies. Reid says the funding will support programs aimed at improving mental health and reducing substance abuse.
The organizations will be able to expand services including drug and alcohol prevention programs, child abuse prevention and mental health and substance abuse services for veterans. The grant recipients say the funding makes a huge difference.
“The Reid Health dollars allow us to do many things – unexpected expenses, feeding people and other needs associated with operating the program,” YWCA-Genesis Program Executive Director Rebecca Studebaker said.
“Reid Health supports the communities we serve in numerous ways, and leading the way in this outreach is our Community Benefit program. Community Benefit is truly at the heart of our overall mission to improve the health of the people we serve,” Reid Health President/CEO Craig Kinyon said.
The grants were recently approved by the governing board.
