The Mental Health Association in Indian River County would like to thank the John's Island Foundation for their generous grant. We are so grateful for your support.

The John's Island Foundation's grant helped the MHA's Vero Beach Drop-In Center perform some much-needed improvements to the building member's lovingly refer to as Our House. The building, donated by the Jim & Billie Ellis Foundation in 2016, functions as one of three Drop-In Centers run by the MHA. The Drop-In Centers are peer-operated, recovery oriented environments in the community that provide a safe, friendly, supportive and confidential place where people with similar experiences are not judged. Open 365 days of the year, the Centers empower consumers and improve their quality of life. The members are respected and offer peer support to one another. Recreational and social activities are offered to all members to promote a supportive, active and empowering atmosphere as members actively participate in their recovery.​


In addition to brand-new impact windows, new signage, and a freshly paved parking lot, the building received a face-lift by way of new exterior paint in fresh new colors.


Thank you, John's Island Foundation, for partnering with us to make our community happier and healthier.
