Mental Health Help for Kids Gets Boost

Bill Pushing for Mental Health ProgramsGRANTS PASS, Ore. — More than half a million dollars in grants are coming to a southern Oregon organization that helps kids with a diagnosis of a  mental health illness.

Kairos, which used to be known as SOASTC, is in Grants Pass. It will now have $275,000 dollars from the Ford Family Foundation and $250,000 from the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust.

This is on top of the $350,000 granted in December from the Meyer Memorial Trust.

All of this money is going to build a new psychiatric residential facility that contains a crisis unit. There is also a community services building that’s already been completed.

Kairos has to raise $250,000 dollars in matching funds. You can find out more about Kairos, here.
