SAN ANGELO, Texas — Nonprofit organizations rely heavily on grants and donations for their survival. 

As of Sept. 22, 2022, the San Angelo Health Foundation is helping four local nonprofits to continue their growth by distributing $708,504 between them. 

The nonprofits focus on health care, mental health and community efforts and for this particular donation, money will be given to CV Biblical Center, MHMR of the Concho Valley, West Texas Counseling and Guidance Center and West Texas Rehab Center. 

Each organization will receive a distinct amount of money for the award and donations were made possible through an online grant portal website. 

The CV Biblical Center was given $24,504 to renovate their counseling center, which has held more than 7000 sessions in the past three years. Their services include religious training, therapy sessions and health and wellness coaching, amongst other opportunities.

MHMR of the Concho Valley was given $24,000 to train the Clubhouse of San Angelo staff members, who give those with mental illnesses volunteer opportunities. The nonprofit offers four learning units and training is completed by certified Clubhouse International training camp members. 

The West Texas Counseling and Guidance Center received $160,000 to help find new staff members and keep them onboard. The organization helps veterans and suicide survivors in Brady, Eden, Junction, Ozona, Menard and Sonora and they have been around since 1976 in the community.

West Texas Rehab Center was given $500,000 for hospice care, and the third floor of Shannon Medical Center will be updated to feel more like a home environment. 

The grants are part of the Health Foundation's third quarter of donations.
