While COVID-19 did its best to interrupt projects and deadlines in 2020, many initiatives carried on.
The second year of millage funding saw the continuation of service expansion—providing all county residents access to WCCMH's 24/7 CARES hotline with information and support, a need that only grew with social isolation and other effects from COVID-19.
When the pandemic created emergency situations, the millage was available to help—hoteling those experiencing homelessness so they could stay safe and providing expanded crisis support services to those in need.
2020 also saw increased funding for community partnerships. These organizations provide our community with essential supports—housing, education, counseling—and strengthen our mental health support system.
The millage contributed to the 31N program, funding more social workers in our local schools. It provided resources for our youth experiencing homelessness. And it opened the doors of 750 Towner, our county's crisis stabilization center.
