The Hancock County Community Foundation and the Rotary Club of Greenfield recently awarded Mental Health Partners of Hancock County a $1,250 grant. HCCF matched dollar for dollar the money raised by the Rotary Club of Greenfield at their Steak‘n Bake’n Raffle last fall. Mental Health Partners of Hancock County works for the promotion and preservation of mental health and wellness, to increase access to resources in the treatment of persons who are affected by emotional or mental illness, and to form partnerships between business entities, government agencies, and private individuals and organizations to achieve those goals.
The grant dollars awarded to Mental Health Partners of Hancock County will help ensure the wellness of citizens throughout the community. Over the last few years, Mental Health Partners of Hancock County has grown vastly. The organization has seen expansion in organizational support, growth in programs and services, and an increase in community need. While they work to overcome the stigma surrounding emotional and mental illnesses, the referral service will become more vital to the community by connecting those in need with the services available. Programs such as Mental Health Partners of Hancock County are essential to the well being of all citizens.
HCCF works with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent funds called endowments. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. HCCF has granted over $8.7 million since its inception in 1992.
