The Casa Mesita Group Home will be turning on the lights again and Los Alamos Family Council is also getting some needed help for the remainder of the year from a statewide funding source.

Officials from ValueOptions New Mexico presented a $100,000 check to Casa Mesita to support the organizations campaign to resume operations, perhaps as early as this summer.

Also on Wednesday, A $9,500 check went to Los Alamos Family Council.

The money came from special fund governed by ValueOptions, a New Mexico organization that manages the contract for the state’s behavioral health network. Part of the annual budget, $3.1 million this year, was set aside for a round of reinvestment at this time in the budget cycle. Another $7.2 million was added to the fund through management efficiencies and state efforts to increase enrollment, according to information provided by ValueOptions.

“ValueOptions gave $100,000 from its reinvestment fund to bring Casa Mesita’s programs back up,” said Patsy Romero, ValueOptions regional director this week during a visit to Los Alamos.
