It has been one year since we made the formal announcement about the formation of Hamilton Center Foundation Inc. and we have much to be proud. Our community has embraced the initiative, and we are working to continue to educate and spread the word about how critical it is that we ensure a strong mental health/addiction service system in central and west central Indiana – forever.
A few highlights from the last fiscal year include:
- The development of a speaker’s bureau/video to educate the community and break down stigma issues
- Gifted first $50,000 to Hamilton Center to fund critical consumer needs
- Held our first fundraising event, Be the Change, hosted by Cindy Martin
In addition, we have secured a matching fund program through the end of the year. Donations made by December 31, 2016 will be matched by the Hux Family Charitable Trust. We are grateful for the generosity and support of Cindy Hux Martin for this commitment. There is no better time like the present to make a gift to the Foundation.
Mental health and addiction services are in greater demand than ever before. Last year, Hamilton Center served over 12,000 children, adolescents, adults and families in central and west central Indiana. Many of those served are our community’s most vulnerable citizens. Ensuring a strong mental health system is vital to the quality of life of those who live and work in this community.
As we embark on this holiday season, we ask for your serious consideration in making a gift to Hamilton Center Foundation now or through a planned gift. There is no better way of celebrating our blessings than providing help, hope and light to those in need. Please help us Light the Way.
