PLEA is excited to announce that we have been awarded a grant from The Heinz Endowments for $100,000 to support the expansion of the Compeer Program. The Compeer program will work towards recruiting more volunteers to work with individuals dealing with behavioral health difficulties; to offer additional socialization programming and inclusive community opportunities to consumers currently in our program; to initiate programming to serve veterans who are dealing with behavioral health difficulties; and to play an active role in reducing the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
The Heinz Endowments supports the efforts of southwestern Pennsylvania as a premier place to live and work, a center for learning and educational excellence and a region that embraces diversity and inclusion.
PLEA cannot thank The Heinz Endowments enough for this wonderful opportunity to serve more individuals dealing with behavioral health difficulties in our region. For more information about The Heinz Endowments, please visit www.heinz.org.
