Positively Impacting Non-Profits Since 1951
Mountain Comprehensive Care Center an Honored 2019 Recipient
Prestonsburg, KY – Mountain Comprehensive Care Center (MCCC) is proud to announce it received a grant from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels (HOKC) in the amount of $15,000 to purchase a handicap accessible van.
The mission of Mountain Comprehensive Care Center is to provide quality behavioral health care that offers recovery and hope. Serving nearly 23,000 clients annually, MCCC provides an array of services throughout Kentucky that address community needs related to behavioral health, addiction, housing, therapeutic foster care, primary medical care, and more.
HOKC will award $2.1 million in grants supporting 265 non-profits, impacting more than 3.9 million Kentuckians. This year’s total is a record for HOKC’s Good Works Program and represents HOKC reaching the $50-million mark since the Colonels became a 501(c)3 in 1951. Grants are made possible through donations from active Kentucky Colonels from around the world who chose to exercise this honor in a meaningful way.
HOKC Commanding General Lynn Ashton said: “We cast a wide net across the Commonwealth and across the scope of those in need from aiding the abused, to assisting the handicapped, to supporting crisis relief to historic preservation. Our goal is to annually grant $5-mlllion to worthy causes. All funding is generated through donations from active Colonels ranging from $1 to major gifts, so to get to that dollar amount we must reach Colonels not engaged with us.”
