GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) – The Counseling and Education Center receives $7 thousand as a grant in success of the Grand Junction Lions Club’s annual raffle. This is the first donation the CEC Counseling Center has gotten in 20 years from the Grand Junction Lions.
The biggest takeaway is how community members are a source of support in the center’s journey to provide custom-made service to someone’s mental health needs.
“This money helps us make sure that our facility continues to be up-to-date and that we’re providing excellence in care and bringing in training such as EMDR and other trainings for professionals so that we can provide high-quality counseling to all,” CEC Counseling Center Hali Nurnberg elaborates.
“Mental health was an issue that we thought would be very impactful, that we could make a difference in over the course of this year,” Grand Junction Lions Club President Dan Sites reflects, “It’s part of our mission to do the most good for the most people while having the most fun and also leads into what is our current grant acceptance process.”
Grand Junction Lions Club’s next cycle of grant giving starts with new submissions accepted at Brown’s Show Fit Company until October 22. Celebrating this donation will continue for the CEC’s open house October 9 as the facility celebrates 40 years of service and begins a new chapter.
