Our Impact

Our work to improve mental wellbeing in Johnson County doesn’t come with a one-size-fits-all approach. The ways we engage are as diverse as our community’s needs. What unifies our efforts is the desire to see people thrive – that often comes with a need for more resources or additional funding. The programs and services we support meet both individual and community-wide needs. Learn more about the primary areas we support below.
