The Fred Lang Foundation awarded Charlotte Behavioral Health Care with a $30,000 grant to be utilized for children, adolescents and family services. Donna Worthley, president of the foundation, presented the grant to CBHC CEO Jay Glynn. This grant was possible due to the generosity of those sponsoring and attending the 11th annual Summer Ball.
A portion of this year’s grant will be applied to Charlotte Behavioral Health Care’s specialty program Art & Soul Summer Camp. This program allows 25 children seen at CBHC to attend summer camp for expressive arts and dance.
The remaining portion of the grant will be used for funding a part-time children’s therapist dedicated to child/adolescent crisis stabilization at CBHC’s CSU, providing evaluation and therapy, medication management and monitoring.
“We are fortunate that the Fred Lang Foundation continues to support CBHC and allows us to add services for children and adolescents,” said Jessica Boles, director of public relations at Charlotte Behavioral Health Care. “The dollars raised go a long way. Year after year, the foundation makes a valuable investment in our community’s future. That commitment will pay off in Charlotte County for years to come.”
Sponsorships are now being accepted for the 12th annual Summer Ball, which is planned for July 25, 2015, at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center. For information about this and other gifts and contributions, call Ms. Boles at 347-6407.
