Spencer, Iowa — An area behavioral health center has received some money toward a special gift that they provide some of their clients.
Seasons Center for Behavioral Health’s Grant Project Administrator, Sarah Heinrichs, tells us that Seasons Center has received $7,000 in specialized funding from Care Connections of Northern Iowa for Holiday Wellness Baskets and Internal Food Bank Expansion.
She tells us that through this funding, Seasons Center was able to provide 100 Holiday Wellness Baskets to clients in need in Clay, Osceola, and Palo Alto counties during the month of December. These baskets included food items, a gift card for the purchase of fresh meat and produce, and resources to promote positive mental health and self-care. Additionally, Seasons Center was able to utilize a portion of the funding to expand their internal Food Bank to allow for increased availability of food.
She says, “We are grateful for the opportunity this specialized funding presented for our agency and the clients we serve.” She says that through this funding, they were able to provide much-needed resources to individuals and families in need in Clay, Osceola, and Palo Alto counties.
Heinrichs says, “We want to continue to stress the importance of overall health and safety, related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and provide information on behavioral health programs and services, and other resources available to support the needs of individuals and families in our communities.”
