Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services and Paint Valley Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMH) Board invest in area youth!
In an effort to strengthen the resiliency of our youth, the Ohio Mental Health, and Addiction Services (OMHAS) has awarded the Paint Valley ADAMH Board $88,524 to serve the youth in our tier one counties, Pike and Ross.
In addition to the funds that OMHAS has awarded, the Paint Valley ADAMH Board will be contributing $103,897 to ensure that the youth in all of our counties has access the Youth Resiliency Programing.
These funds will assist local non-profit agencies in providing programing to the youth and their families in Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, Pike and Ross counties.
Faye Williamson, Paint Valley ADAMH Board Chair, states “It is important that we contribute funding to this project to ensure that our youth has access to a safe place to develop leadership skills, build strong and positive relationships with adults and peers, and focus on their strengths instead of their weaknesses. Working with these non-profit agencies, it is our goal to strengthen the resiliency of our youth.”
