Lancaster Osteopathic Health Foundation - Grants Info Session

Lancaster County youth ages 14-21 in foster care are one of the most vulnerable populations. These teens and young adults have endured the trauma of abuse and neglect, and the subsequent trauma of being removed from their homes. In fact, many of these children have been in the foster care system for years, suffering secondary trauma of multiple placements and prolonged uncertainty. As a result, these youth often require comprehensive behavioral healthcare.

An LOHF grant will provide 45 of these youth with trained advocates through a $15,000 grant to CASA of Lancaster County (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children). The volunteers will foster futures for these teens through mentorship, court advocacy, orchestrated collaborative efforts with community partners, and consistency.

An additional $42,300 in Children's Behavioral Health Grants will be available this fall. Tax exempt community benefit organizations serving Lancaster County are eligible to apply.

Those interested in learning about LOHF Children's Behavioral Health Grants and how to apply, are encouraged to attend this FREE information session.
