Milestone has been awarded a $500,000 grant from the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide integrated physical and behavioral health care services to individuals in need in the Wilkinsburg area.
The grant was submitted in collaboration with the Squirrel Hill Health Center, which recently was awarded federal stimulus funds to purchase a mobile medical unit to treat the area’s most vulnerable populations. Please see the great article that was written about the Squirrel Hill award, http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09192/983269-53.stm\
Milestone’s award becomes effective on Sept. 30, 2010 and has the potential to be renewed for four years.
Milestone is a private, nonprofit, community-based agency providing services to people with behavioral and intellectual challenges throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania. To learn more about Milestone, please visit our website at http://www.milestonecentersinc.org/
