100+ Women Who Care give to Treehouse Therapies

BEND, Ore. - The group 100+ Women Who Care of Central Oregon donated $21,200 from their members earlier this month to Treehouse Therapies as their fourth-quarter donation.

 

Funds donated by members for 100+ Women Who Care will go toward mental health programs, specifically expanding and converting a current garage space at their Healing Reins clinic, located at 60575 Billadeau Road in Bend, into two mental health treatment rooms, enabling them to offer additional services.

 

“The vast majority of families in our community who are affected by disability are not getting the mental health services they need,” said Christen Eby, executive director for Treehouse Therapies. “We are so grateful for this donation that will allow us to add mental health services to our therapy programs as early as this March.”
