Great Rivers United Way invests in local, youth mental health programs

HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT)- This community has no shortage of people willing to donate money to different causes, and now some of those people are seeing how their dollars are going to work.

The Great Rivers United Way is making a $127,000  investment in youth mental health programs. The funds will be divvied up between several organizations in the area including the Boys and Girls Clubs, YWCA, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. “We make sure they’re doing great things with the funds they’ve been trusted so we can tell the community, we know for sure the dollars that are raised are going to a good cause,” says Community Impact Dir. Liz Evans.

Many of the programs teach kids resiliency and problem-solving skills that support their overall mental well-being.
