Applewood Centers is a private, nonprofit agency providing mental health services, social services and education to children, adolescents and families living in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties. Dedicated to addressing a variety of behavioral, emotional and learning problems, we provide a continuum of care from outpatient counseling to residential treatment.
Nearly 200 guests attended Applewood's Keeping the Promise luncheon on June 15. Keynote speaker Eric Gordon, CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD), eloquently highlighted the many challenges of students in our community and the role played by Applewood to address these, including prevention programming and School-Based Counseling. The agency’s array of services within the schools, as well as those offered out of school, ensure that CMSD students have access to the highest quality mental health services, offering them a greater chance of success.
This year, donations made at the event will enable Applewood to purchase a van to transport students to our After School Program, which provides intensive group counseling for children and adolescents who have severe emotional and behavioral difficulties. To date, just over $20,000 has been raised toward the goal of $35,000. Please consider making a donation to help us get the van before the start of the school year!
