San Andreas, CA– California’s Mental Health Commission has approved over $6 million in Prop. 63 funds for mental health services in five California counties including Calaveras. $400,300 will fund community support groups including the Garden to Families Program.
The Garden to Families Program supports consumer recovery goals through meaningful volunteer work that helps support the Calaveras County Food Bank. In this program, consumers cultivate and harvest produce and then donate it to the food bank. Garden to Families also provides transportation to consumers in the more insolated parts of the county and outreaches to Latino and Miwok residents.
Other California counties that received Prop. 63 funds include Placer, Santa Clara, Siskiyou and Stanislaus counties. The California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission met yesterday at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas.
