What we use the funding for?

Funds will be used by Prevent Suicide Chippewa Valley to support activities, education and raise awareness.  In 2017-18 we supported the Hopeline Textline, distributed tear off flyers to area businesses that provide crisis information.  The National Alliance on Mental Illness-Chippewa Valley will use funds to create a physical space to further their work on educating and supporting loved ones of those with mental illness.

$500 grants given from the proceeds of the 2018 walk!

The Eau Claire Police Department was a recipient of one of our grants! The grant will be used to continue Crisis Intervention Training for law-enforcement in our communities. Thank you for working to educate on mental illness, improve interventions and reduce stigma.

The Tandem Mentor program, was the first recipient of our $500 grants. These grants were made possible through your donations at The Sharing Hope walk!
