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.
