Editor’s Note: In this multi-part series, the United Way of Montgomery County is featuring its funded partner agencies.

Volunteers for Mental Health

The mission of Volunteers for Mental Health in Montgomery County is to support healthy and happy mental health in citizens of Montgomery County.

VMHMC has several endeavors including the Bridge Counseling Voucher program, providing counseling vouchers to students at all Montgomery County schools; Christmas Gift Lift program, providing basic foundational support items to 235 individuals in 11 Montgomery County nursing home and transitional living facilities; and the Teacher Friend Program, matching volunteers with teachers in all three school corporations to support academic success and remediation in the classroom.

United Way in Montgomery County funds are primarily directed toward the Christmas Gift Lift program, but ensure all VMHMC programs are supported.

Boys & Girls Club

The Boys & Girls Club is a youth service organization that serves children ages 5 to 18. They provide after-school programming, athletic leagues, and a summer program that is open Monday through Friday. They serve children from all three local school corporations and have been making a difference in the lives of many children since 1956.

One hundred percent of all United Way dollars go directly to its programming. Without support from United Way in Montgomery County, the Boys & Girls Club would not be able to support our communities’ children and provide these important programs.
