Paint Valley ADAMH Board, OMHAS Invest in Area Youth

In an effort to strengthen the resiliency of the area’s youth, Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) has awarded the Paint Valley ADAMH Board with a nearly $89-thousand grant to serve the youth in the board’s tier one counties of Pike and Ross.

In addition to the $88,524.00 that OMHAS has awarded, the Paint Valley ADAMH Board will be contributing $103,897 to ensure that the youth in each of its servicing counties has access the Youth Resiliency Programming. These funds will assist local non-profit agencies in providing programming to the youth and their families in Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, Pike and Ross counties.

Faye Williamson, Paint Valley ADAMH Board Chair, says “It is important that we contribute funding to this project to ensure that our youth has access to a safe place to develop leadership skills, build strong and positive relationships with adults and peers, and focus on their strengths instead of their weaknesses. Working with these non-profit agencies, it is our goal to strengthen the resiliency of our youth.”
