Federal Funding Extension Helps Local Non-profit Expand Care For the Most Vulnerable

Jan 20, 2021

We are excited to announce that recent approval of a COVID federal spending package extends our ability to provide a one-stop-shop of integrated mental health, substance use, and physical care services as a designated Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC).

Our CEO, Jill Wiedemann-West, and CFO, Jim Olson, discuss with Andy Steiner of MinnPost how they see the CCBHC approach as “a philosophy of care.” It creates better access, lowers costs, and improves health outcomes for the most vulnerable individuals in our communities.
