Building hope and changing lives. 

There is a community focused on behavioral health. When people think of health, they often naturally think of physical health – doctor visits, thermometers, blood pressure, stethoscopes –  and behavioral health appears in the background, somewhere else. We stand firmly on the ground that it’s every bit as important, and real, and necessary to a healthy life filled with energy, productivity and a sense of being a whole and valued human being.

Mental health is as important as general health. It affects our mood, our disposition, our physical and spiritual being, even our relationships with others. Good mental health strengthens our ability not only to cope with stresses, but also to be creative and connected in our everyday lives. If one person doesn’t receive that opportunity to experience restored or improved mental health, we’ve not yet fulfilled our mission.

Our community recognizes the impact of individual behavioral health on the wider community. It’s because of that recognition that Hamilton Center Foundation seeks to be a beacon of light for the Hamilton Center in its mission of building hope and changing lives. 

“Give light and people will find the way.” – Ella Baker, Human Rights Activist

For more than 40 years, Hamilton Center, Inc.(HCI) has been building hope and changing lives. Dedicated staff provide quality behavioral healthcare, wellness and human development services to the community. It takes a team effort of staff, volunteers and community partnerships to make it all work.

The Hamilton Center Foundation was created to help further that mission and ease the financial burden of HCI. You can help us, providing funds to support proactive intervention and treatment to even the most vulnerable. With the foundation, we can help people with mental health problems find recovery and improved quality of life.
