This quarter’s selected nonprofit is Friends of the Alexandria Mental Health Center. Friends is an all volunteer run nonprofit that was established in 1984. Since then, they have been working to foster the recovery and well-being of Alexandrians with low-income who are participating in behavioral health programs through the City Department of Community and Human Services. Friends provides financial assistance when special and emergency needs outpace participant incomes and/or fall through the cracks of other organizations. Their overhead is less than 1% and they have no paid staff or office space. Services provided include personal care, health care, housing costs, and other client needs.
Our next meeting will be held on May 2, 2019 at Woodrow Wilson Library, 6101 Knollwood Drive in Falls Church, VA.
