Senator Blumenthal Announces $1.2 Million in Congressional Funding for CMHA
CMHA hosted US Senator Richard Blumenthal at our 233 Main Street headquarters in New Britain to recognize Overdose Awareness Day and announce CMHA's award of $1.2 million in congressional funding for Kensington Gardens, a state-of-the-art long-term residential facility that will provide respite beds and support for individuals in crisis and living with serious behavioral health issues.
"We serve thousands of people every year, and it never gets easier, the number of people who need us just keeps growing, " said Molly Satalino, CMHA Assistant Clinical Director of Behavioral Health Outpatient services.
"The staff at CMHA are incredibly dedicated," said Board Chair Todd DeGroff, "it is thanks to their hard work, and the backing of elected officials like Senator Blumenthal, that CMHA was able to secure the $1.2 million in congressional funding to support the development of Kensington Gardens."
Thank you to Senator Blumenthal as well as Senator Chris Murphy and Representative Jahana Hayes for your support of CMHA and all we do for our communities.
