River Edge Behavioral Health Center Receives Grants to Support the Homeless
Macon. Georgia — More than $59,000 new federal dollars to help solve Macon’s homelessness problem has been awarded to River Edge Behavioral Health Center (REBHC). These dollars will fund a Harm reduction case manager and provide essential services like outreach, assessments, blankets, personal hygiene products, and clothing.
“There was $2.6M more requests than available funding. River Edge is honored to have won funds to help make life better for Macon and its residents.” said Shannon T. Harvey, River Edge Chief Executive Officer. “We know that treatment is effective and recovery from mental illness is to be expected. However, involvement in treatment is easier when people know here they are going to lay their heads.”
River Edge Behavioral Health Center has served the Central Georgia region for over 50 years in providing treatment and supportive services for individuals with mental illness, addictive disease and developmental disabilities. HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
