Organization Details


The purpose of this fund is to address immediate needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the recent crisis, this fund has been created to provide funding for…
• Sustaining daily operational costs to maintain safety net services.
• Supporting the implementation of technology to continue connecting with clients remotely-laptops, pads, microphones, software, bandwidth.
• Purchasing approved cleaning products such as toilet paper/paper towels, hand sanitizer, gloves, and masks.
• Purchasing personal protective equipment (PPE) so clinicians can provide direct services to people in residential treatment-people who are detoxing from substances, often experiencing homelessness, and at risk of other health issues.
• Purchasing art supplies to support residents while in isolation.

Program Successes
Mothers in Recovery: This past year 194 women (61 women in Grass Valley, 59 women in Auburn, and 74 women in Roseville) found support to be clean, strong, and healthy women and mothers. Across the programs, 56 moms were reunited with their children as they demonstrated the health, strength, and parenting capacity for children to live with them following Child Protective Services intervention. These children are now growing up in homes with moms who are present and healthy.

Adolescent Program: GWC worked with 59 teens in Nevada County in individualized programs and served 184 teens in local high schools. Within Placer County, we served 70 teens in outpatient programs at Granite Wellness sites and reached 201 teens in the high schools. In total, Granite Wellness Centers provided tools and techniques to empower 514 adolescents to handle challenging family and social situations, address trauma, understand themselves better, and learn new ways to live free of alcohol and other drugs.

DUI Treatment Program: GWC's DUI classes address effects of alcohol and/or other drugs on the body, both physically and mentally, DUI laws, drunk driving, theories of addiction, and methods of preventing another DUI. During fiscal year 2018/2019, Granite Wellness Centers helped 1,705 DUI clients in Placer County and 625 in Nevada County.
Granite Wellness Centers began our child development program to reduce barriers to accessing treatment for parents by providing safe, onsite care for their children. The child development program provides quality care and a nurturing, safe and loving environment for young children. Little ones in our program find security (they have often lacked), nurturing, and fun. For children ages 7-12, Granite Wellness Programs offer educational support groups to help them to understand addiction and how to make healthier choices for themselves. This program provides lessons on developing life and coping skills, in a fun and entertaining way appropriate for young children. They will learn to ask for help while also giving and receiving support for one another. Child development programs utilize Ages and Stages Questionnaires, an evidence-based assessment to ensure age-appropriate development. GWC provides programming at our Grass Valley, Auburn, and Roseville campuses. The program also provides opportunities for parents to engage with their children, and learn developmentally appropriate practices. Educated and experienced staff ensure that parents can see firsthand how important a safe, stable environment is for the growth and development of their children.
Program Successes
This past year, 211 children found fun and love in Granite Wellness programs (144 children in Nevada County and 67 in Placer County).
