Coleman Gets $2K Grant from Thomases Family Endowment
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Coleman Health Services will be able to bring more mental health services to the uninsured and underinsured thanks to a $2,000 grant from the Thomases Family Endowment of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation.
The funding will be used to assist patients at the Belmont Avenue location. Coleman serves about 7,000 people in the Mahoning Valley per year, says Tammy Weaver, vice president of clinical services and chief officer of 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,” says Weaver.
My father would be proud in the mission of Coleman Health Services,” said Martha Thomases. “It’s mission is very much in line with his values.”
Founded in 1978, Coleman Health Services employs 850 who serve 22 counties in Ohio.
