ANSONIA: BHCare received two-year grants from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven for $75,000 and the Valley Community Foundation also for $75,000 to support its affiliation with the Lower Naugatuck Valley Parent Child Resource Center.
They will use this funding to integrate care for Valley families and to increase the services of children in the Greater New Haven and Shoreline communities.
These organizations collaborate to create a comprehensive system of child, adolescent, teen and adult care struggling with mental illness and/or addiction. Parents and children have access to on-site services at the same time while the families receive the support that they need in order to move forward. If certain clients of the PCRC system start to age out of children’s services, they will still remain in the same system so they don’t “fall through the cracks.”
