The not-for-profit organization Hope House, Inc., located in Augusta, Georgia, has received a micro-grant from the Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare (IABHC) Fund.
Now in its 25th year, Hope House offers comprehensive, highly intensive programs geared to help homeless and low-income women, who are either single, pregnant, or who have children under the age of 13, with substance use disorder and untreated mental health disorders. In 2016, Hope House served 101 women and 81 children through residential and intensive outpatient programs.
The micro-grant will help support the Therapeutic Childcare center at Hope House.
IABHC supports the behavioral health industry by awarding micro-grants to not-for-profit organizations, typically ranging from $5,000 to $10,000.
