Agency helps keep a man on his feet
I came to Logansport four years ago. I have two daughters that live in this town. Mental Health America of Cass County helped me get a place to live and budget my money. They have helped me pay off all of my bills and get things I have needed for a long time. When I have been sick, they have supported me and done many things to help me survive. I have a car now and can do many things to help myself.
When I have needed financial help, they have been there because people with my illness and background are not able to get loans from banks. I have heard many people yell at Karen [Waldron, executive director of MHACC] for stealing their money. This is not true. They will show you your QuickBooks statement and bank statement any time you want to see it.
It is really hard to live on $710 a money. Tt goes fast. I know if Mental Health America were not here, I would lose everything I have. Mental Health America is a place I feel safe and accepted.
United Way needs to give their funding back. They don’t know and don’t care how much the Mental Health helps people.
Some don’t hear thank you enough
A simple thank you is sometimes good enough for some people in recognition for a job well done to show them your appreciation. I want to take an opportunity to thank several people in our community to let them know that I sincerely appreciate their service. Our local, county, state police officers and dispatchers; our local men and women firefighters; our city street department and state highway department; our utilities employees for keeping power to our homes; and our men and women of our military. We take all these things for granted, thank you all!
