Mountain Comprehensive Care Center announced Monday that it received a grant from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels in the amount of $15,000 to purchase a handicap accessible van. 

The mission of Mountain Comprehensive Care Center is to provide quality behavioral health care that offers recovery and hope. 

Serving nearly 23,000 clients annually, MCCC provides an array of services throughout Kentucky that address community needs related to behavioral health, addiction, housing, therapeutic foster care, primary medical care and other needs. 

The grant is among $2.1 million presented by the group to 265 nonprofits this year, a press release said, as part of its Good Works program. Grants are made possible through donations from active Kentucky Colonels from around the world.

Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels Commanding General Lynn Ashton said in the press release, “We cast a wide net across the Commonwealth and across the scope of those in need from aiding the abused, to assisting the handicapped, to supporting crisis relief to historic preservation. Our goal is to annually grant $5 million to worthy causes. All funding is generated through donations from active Colonels ranging from $1 to major gifts, so to get to that dollar amount we must reach Colonels not engaged with us.”
