Mountain Family Health Centers is thrilled to receive a $20,000 Impact Grant from the Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF), to support tele-psychiatry services at their Rifle Clinic.

WCCF formally presented a check to Mountain Family CEO Ross Brooks on Thursday, October 26th at the Aspen Glen Club, as part of a larger celebration with The Two Rivers Community Foundation (2RCF).

“We were so pleased that Garfield County received one of the six high impact grants furthering MFHC’s innovative approach to address mental health challenges in our communities,” noted Jake Lasko as he presented the check to Ross Brooks, CEO of Mountain Family Health Centers. Lasko is Chairman of 2RCF.

Mountain Family provides services in Garfield County and is one of six organizations in the Western Colorado area to receive an Impact Grant in celebration of WCCF’s 20th anniversary.

More than fifty people gathered at the Aspen Glen Club to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF), who partners with 2RCF to help donors establish endowed funds to benefit communities in Western Colorado. Lasko also announced the establishment of the Two Rivers Unrestricted Endowed Grants Fund (T.R.U.E.), to make grants available annually to nonprofits from Carbondale to New Castle.
