Record Observer - - Obituaries -

QUEEN­STOWN — The Queen Anne’s County Men­tal Health Com­mit­tee is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for its 2017 grants. QACMHC grants pro­vide gap-fill­ing funds to non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions that pro­vide ser­vices to Queen Anne’s County cit­i­zens who need as­sis­tance with man­age­ment of their men­tal health ill­nesses.

Grant ap­pli­ca­tions are due by Sept. 15, and grants will be awarded by Nov. 3.

In 2016, QACMHC awarded $29,500 in grants to Cross­roads Com­mu­nity Inc., Eastern Shore Hos­pi­tal Cen­ter Aux­il­iary, Haven Min­istries, QAC So­cial Ser­vices De­part­ment’s Nur­tur­ing Pro­gram, Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing, Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice, and QAC De­part­ment of Health’s Healthy Fam­i­lies Pro­gram.

QACMHC was es­tab­lished in the 1986 by Lynette Nielsen who re­al­ized that lo­cal men­tal health pro­grams needed ac­cess to ad­di­tional funds to serve the needs of their pa­tients. It is in this spirit that the cur­rent ded­i­cated vol­un­teers of QACMHC con­tinue this mis­sion by hold­ing fundrais­ers and so­lic­it­ing do­na­tions from in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses to help pro­vide and en­hance men­tal health ser­vices for the res­i­dents of Queen Anne’s County.

QACMHC is a pri­vate non­profit 501(c)(3) or­ga­ni­za­tion, and all do­na­tions are tax de­ductible. The or­ga­ni­za­tion’s next fundraiser, Spurs & Spir­its Barn Party, is sched­uled for Oct. 21 in Cen­tre­ville. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at QACMHC.org.
