The grant is being awarded by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and Mental Health and Addiction Services. HCDDS's grant is one of seven across the state, chose from 38 applications.
"We are grateful to be one of the seven areas in Ohio to receive support from the Governor to help families and youth who are at risk of harming themselves or others," said Alice Pavey, HCDDS Superintendent. "We in Hamilton County are especially fortunate to work with such a wide range of community partners who are joining with us in this grant to develop more comprehensive services than we've been able to provide with local funds."
Partners in the grant are Lifepoint Solutions, Finding Hope, Hope for Children and Families, Resident Home Corporation, Lighthouse Youth Services, and the Hamilton County Mental Health & Recovery Services Board.
The Directors of the Ohio Departments of Developmental Disabilities (John Martin) and Mental Health & Addiction Services (Tracy Plouck) are to visit Hamilton County soon to discuss the grant.
