Wells Fargo awarded a $10,000 grant to the Mental Illness Recovery Center, Inc. (MIRCI) to support Transitional Youth Home.
Funds from the grant will be used to provide stable housing, increased educational and employment services, sustainable and supportive attachments with adults, and support for social and emotional well-being for youth ages 17 to 24 who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness.
“As we work to end Youth Homelessness in the Midlands, we are thrilled to have the support of Wells Fargo. Since 2017, when our Youth Services Program launched, we have served over 325 youth. With support from our community allies, such as Wells Fargo, we feel confident we can continue our work, helping our community’s most vulnerable population”, said MIRCI’s Executive Director, Julie Ann Avin.
