Maitland, Florida, September 23, 2021 – The Molina Healthcare Charitable Foundation, in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of Florida, has donated $15,000 to Federation of Families to support youth and their families in Central Florida who have been impacted by mental illness.
The donation will fund programs to empower and engage youth and young adults through the healing process as they deal with mental health issues in their own lives and in the lives of those they love.
“Dealing with mental health issues can be overwhelming for anyone, but for youth, it can be especially challenging,” said Mike Jones, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Florida. “To give them the support they need is critical to setting them on the path to a healthy future. We’re proud to partner with Federation of Families to support these life-changing programs.”
The grant will support age appropriate activities as well as special speakers to teach the participants life skills and offer encouragement. The funds will also support a youth community event to be help in 2022.
“Helping to strengthen families is vital to building healthier communities, and it starts with investing in our youth,” said Muriel Jones, executive director of Federation of Families. “We’re so grateful to the Molina Healthcare Charitable Foundation for this generous donation.”
