LEWISTON – Tri-County Mental Health Services has received a $2,500 grant from the Maine Charity Foundation Fund of the Maine Community Foundation. The funds will be used to purchase items and services for children and families served with Case Management Services in Androscoggin, Franklin, Oxford and northern Cumberland counties.

“This grant will allow us to purchase items and services such as clothing, books, recreational equipment or other things that are not funded through other programs but are vital to the family’s well-being. With basic needs better addressed, the family’s stress can be reduced and they can focus on recovery,” said Kimberly Foskett, manager of Children’s Case Management. Each year, the program serves about 600 children and their families.

Tri-County is Maine’s most comprehensive agency dealing with the psychological and social well-being of children, adults and elders. It serves more than 6,000 individuals each year with innovative programs and services addressing mental health, substance abuse, mental retardation/developmental disabilities and autism.
