Coleman Health Services Gets Grant from Thomases Family

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Coleman Health Services is receiving a $2,000 grant from the Thomases Family Endowment of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation. The funding will help the nonprofit serve clients at its Belmont Avenue location in Youngstown who are uninsured or underinsured to receive needed mental health services.

Coleman serves nearly 7,000 people annually in the Mahoning Valley. The nonprofit treats the whole person by helping clients with counseling and case management, to secure social security cards, employment and affordable housing.

“The Thomases Family continues to support the most marginalized residents in our community and we are extremely grateful for their generosity,” said Sheila Donnadio, Coleman chief officer for Trumbull and Mahoning counties. “Most of the clients we serve at the Youngstown location have annual incomes of less than $16,000, and 40% less than $8,000 annually.”

“My father would be proud to participate in the mission of Coleman Health Services,” said Martha Thomases. “Its mission is very much in line with his values, and he would have appreciated everything Coleman does to improve life in the Mahoning Valley.”

Coleman Health Services provides diagnostic assessment, psychiatry, counseling, case management, employment and co-occurring disorder services to 2,000 clients.
