The mood was joyous among members of the nonprofit community gathered inside the Community Building for the ninth annual grantee recognition live webcast Thursday.
Thirty-five nonprofits from throughout New Mexico shared in $527,535 in funding awards. Los Alamos Family Council is one of several Los Alamos agencies awarded Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group grants.
“We received $20,000 and all of it is going to support low income people in need of psychiatric treatment, which has been identified as one of the most pressing needs of this community,” said Counseling Center Program Director Cheryl Pongratz of the Los Alamos Family Council. “Con Alma has been a life saver … there are people in this community who are suicidal and this funding gets them the help they need.”
Pongratz explained that Con Alma is the parent of the Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group and all of the money given through grants to northern New Mexico programs has come from Con Alma. Con Alma received several million dollars from Los Alamos Medical Center several years ago when it went from a not for profit to a for profit hospital, Pongratz said.
