Crawford County Mental Health Center was awarded a grant from the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas to fund the “The Recovery Backpack of Hope” Program. This program will provide clients entering the residential addiction treatment program with basic hygiene and clothing needs.
Approximately 50 clients enter the Addiction Treatment Center residential program annually without any possessions. This program will provide these clients with those necessities. Executive Administrator Michael Ehling says they are extremely grateful for the support of the Community Foundation of SEK, and the support allows them to continue to serve and meet the mental health needs of the community.
