The Vallejo Executive Lions Club showed their support for mental health clients in Solano County by donating to our Wellness Recovery Center.
The WRC is a peer run drop-in center for individuals with a known or suspected mental illness, located adjacent to Caminar’s medication clinic and case management services. A wide range of educational and support groups are offered, including art groups (expressive, creative, storytelling art), employment preparedness groups by Jobs Plus, and library visits.
From the Lions Club Website:
"Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. With the funds we make through our fundraisers, we offer assistance to local non-profits and needy individuals. We focus on eye care, recreational, and educational services for the elderly and youth."
Kenneth Langill, who is the Program Coordinator for the WRC, stated:
"I’m appreciative that the Lyons Club has donated $500.00 dollars to Caminar’s Wellness Recovery Center. I remember hosting the president (Gary Truelson) whom visited our center with another board member way back in May 2016. He was impressed with the Wellness Recovery Center. He then invited myself and Chris (Kughn, Solano Executive Director) to give a presentation to the Lyon’s Club Board Members on October 4, 2016 for their monthly luncheons at Zio Fraedos restaurant in Vallejo, CA. I’m happy for their contribution and thankful for their support!!"
