Resources for Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment

The 2020 Brownson Memorial Fund grant cycle is now open! The deadline for this process is June 30, 2020.

Applications should be from nonprofit organizations that address substance use education, prevention, and treatment in Mesa County.

Formerly the Bridge House, the Brownson Memorial Fund affiliated with WCCF in 2004, becoming WCCF’s first field of interest fund. Since 1985, the Brownson Memorial Fund has granted over $370,000 to organizations addressing substance abuse prevention and treatment in Mesa County.

The Mesa County Substance Use Resource Guide was created as a result of a partnership between the Brownson Memorial Fund and the Mesa County Opioid Response Group.
