IT IS WITH GREAT PRIDE THAT WE ARE ABLE TO ANNOUNCE THAT MSP-CAN HAS BEEN AWARDED A GRANT FOR $95,000 TO BE ISSUED IN THE FALL of 2015!!!  The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) made the announcement last week. This allows our work to continue and to expand to help parents and children with concerns and issues so that their lives can improve.

 

MSP-CAN has moved, our new address is 1739 Saint Marys Ave. Suite B in Parkersburg, WV.   Our phone  and our toll- free line are the same.  We have been busy getting our new office up and running.  Our support group, Parents Helping Parents has been changed to the second Thursday of each month at 5pm.  We also will be having different workshops and speakers during the year, which we will post in our newsletter and on our web. MSP-CAN has become very involved in our community with other community service agencies.   Some of these agencies and programs are, Courage to Change, Youth Adolescent Council, Community Services Council and Healthy  Community Coalition, which we are on the mental health sub committee.  We have been invited to join the Transition Committee of the Mid Ohio Valley.  Supporting organizations are WV Division of Rehabilitations, Wood County Special Education Department, Jackson County (JCDC), SW Resources, The ARC of MOV, REM, Westbrook Health Services, Workforce WV/Youth Advantage Program and WV DHHR children.

We attended  the Strengthing Families Conference on September 18, 2015 in Charleston.  This was a powerful conference.  If you felt discourage when you went, you were encourage and gained strength to keep giving and helping families.

We hope to be able to encourage our parents and give them any education we can to be better advocates for their children.  MSP-CAN continues to accept referrals, provide one on one to family members, offer trainings, share information and collaborate with other organizations.
