Christmas Gift Lift
Since 1951, MHA of North Central Indiana has provided holiday gifts for residents of Howard, Cass, and Miami Counties who are challenged with intellectual and/or mental disabilities. The Gift Lift has expanded to include residents of group homes and nursing home facilities, including those administered by Bona Vista, Howard Haven County Home, Community Howard, Logansport State hospital residents, local nursing homes, and members of Social Club. Bags are filled with gifts for each individual. Last year, the Gift Lift provided gifts for more than 420 people. These are the only gifts many recipients receive for Christmas. Gift donations, especially individually wrapped sugar-free candy, and cash donations are taken all year to help us fulfill this enormous task.
Lunch on a Leash
MHA is collaborating with the Kokomo Humane Society in this program designed to promote Mental Health in our community by offering workers the opportunity to get out of the office on their lunch and socialize with animals awaiting adoption at the Kokomo Humane Society. This program aligns with our national initiative to be #fitforthefuture, to enroll call (765) 459-0309.
