VYFS is grateful for a grant from Multicare Health System in the amount of $5000. This grant helps ensure that all those who need counseling services on the Island can access those services.
In many instances, people facing serious mental health issues like anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, personality disorders, grief or trauma, can't access counseling because of a lack of funding. In these cases, VYFS makes counseling available at very low- or no-cost. This includes uncompensated care for youth whose families are unable to afford counseling or who wish to seek confidential access to counseling. The MultiCare grant funds will be used to cover the costs of these services.
The VYFS mission of helping Islanders raise thriving, resilient children and youth by fostering a community of emotionally healthy, resourceful families and individuals dovetails with the Multicare mission of partnering for healing and a healthy future. Together we are focused on creating healthful families and individuals who will carry healing and resilience into the future.
