Queen Anne’s Mental Health Committee Awards $42K in Grants

The Queen Anne’s County Mental Health Committee recently awarded $42,290 in grants to six organizations that provide mental health services to residents of Queen Anne’s County.

According to a press release:

Grants were awarded to: Crossroads Community Inc., Anne Arundel Medical Center Foundation, Compass Regional Hospice, Haven Ministries, QAC Social Services Department’s Nurturing Program, and the McArdle School.

The grants will be used in various ways throughout the community. Crossroads Community will put its grant money to use repairing several of its Residential Rehabilitation Program group homes, which provide a place for its consumers to live and to learn life skills in a safe communal living environment. Anne Arundel Medical Center’s grant will fund an art therapist in its Partial Hospitalization Program, which embraces a holistic approach to treatment of its mental health patients. Compass Regional Hospice’s Hope and Healing Center will use QACMHC’s grant for its grief counseling programs.

Haven Ministries requested funds to continue its case management services that connect its homeless clients with resources and programs, such as mental health services. QAC Social Services Department’s Nurturing Program’s mission is to provide opportunities for personal growth in order to prevent and treat the intergenerational cycle of child abuse and neglect, and QACMHC’s grant will help enhance this program. With the help of QACMHC’s grant, the McArdle School will build a Sensory Room to help those with learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, or sensory impairments learn to interact with the world around them.
