Community Assistance Fund

The work we do every day centers around helping individuals and families living with mental health conditions. People don’t have access to the medicine they need because they cannot afford them. To make a real impact in their lives, we want to ease the financial burden by helping individuals with some of the costs of their medication.

To Donors:

Dear Donor,

Your support is critical to the success of the fund. We can’t do it without your financial support. Every dollar you give will make an impact. All donations will be used to support and help individuals who are unable to pay the cost of medicine. Donations may be submitted via Pay Pal.
