Celebrate Potential During Mental Health Awareness Month
Raise Funds With Us All Month Long
During Mental Health Awareness Month we invite you to join us in celebrating the potential of every person to live a meaningful and connected life. Every year we work with more than 600 adults in Santa Cruz County who are navigating the mental health system. Our goal is to help every person that walks through our door build stronger bridges to our community through education, job, housing and lifestyle support. With your help we can sustain programs that empower adults with psychiatric disabilities and their families with the tools and resources they desire to build stronger bonds and improve their lives.
Volunteers Needed to Support Check-in At Vaccine Clinics
Ongoing Through June
Volunteers are needed to support the smooth running of the Mass Vaccine Clinic happening in our community. As a volunteer you will be asked to help with confirming that community members have an appointment, bringing supplies to various stations, and completing paperwork with community members before they receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We have an immediate need for volunteers to staff stations.
