We need vehicles to transport clients to/from home, medical/dental/vision appointments and numerous therapeutic recreation activities on a regular basis. The monthly rate we receive from the county for program services does not adequately cover the cost of vans (and/or costs associated with transportation).
Regulations are strict with regard to keeping safe, well-maintained facilities. This includes things like landscaping, paint, general repairs, air conditioning, etc. Additional resources are always needed to meet these standards at all times.
A small percentage of the clients receiving services through Behavior Health Services do not qualify for Medi-Cal and do not have any health insurance (they are commonly referred to as the “working poor”). We need approximately $150,000 on an annual basis to cover the cost of providing mental health services to this indigent population.
The families served through our Wraparound program are families in crisis who are poor and often unable to meet the needs of their children. They are in need of basic items such as diapers, refrigerators, furniture and clothing. A general fund to cover these items is needed.
