Every year, Jefferson Center touches the lives of more than 34,000 children and their families, adults, and older adults who struggle with mental illness, emotional problems, and substance use issues. But we can’t do this alone.
State, federal, and grant funding does not cover all the costs associated with providing effective mental health care and substance use treatment to all who come through our doors. As a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, we depend on the support of our community.
At Jefferson Center, we know that recovery from mental illness and addiction is possible. Your generosity can inspire hope to people of all ages and from all walks of life, living with a mental illness and waking up each morning dreaming of a better day, a place to call home, a job, a chance to belong.
How You Can Help
In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, we have made swift and significant modifications to our operations and service delivery so that we can remain connected to our clients and our community. Most of our staff are working remotely and care is now accessible by phone or video. These modifications are of course, unbudgeted and costly, yet we are determined to do whatever it takes to sustain our operations with as little disruption as possible so that we can promote the health of our community. We’re asking you to please help offset these unplanned expenses by making a gift to Jefferson Center today. When you donate to Jefferson Center, you help our community heal.
Click here to donate and select “COVID-19 Support Fund.” Any gift amount is so appreciated and will help us navigate this crisis. Together, we will get through this.
