Northwest Bank recently fulfilled an extremely generous commitment to Dickinson Center, Inc. (DCI), a non-profit organization and affiliate of Journey Health System, for their “Building for Tomorrow” campaign, supporting the St. Marys building project. Thanks to the collective generosity of individuals, organizations, foundations and businesses like Northwest Bank, DCI has made remarkable strides in its fundraising efforts, reaching $1,208,721. However, they still aim to reach their $1.5 million goal, with $291,279 left to secure.

Jim Prosper, DCI’s Executive Director said, “We greatly appreciate this $100,000 donation from Northwest Bank. Centralization of Dickinson’s behavioral health services in downtown St. Marys will increase access and allow more individuals to be served in a new state-of-the-art environment of care.”

Dickinson Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization that has been providing behavioral health services in the City of St. Marys for over twenty-five years. Annually, the programs that will be housed in the new facility serve more than 1,200 children and adults. Additionally, DCI’s St. Marys-based programs offer classroom-based prevention education, including life-saving suicide prevention and other mental health awareness initiatives, to 1,500 elementary, middle and high school students across Elk and Cameron counties.

Many individuals within our community, both residents and members of the workforce, experience the impact of mental health challenges. Dickinson and the campaign committee extend their hopes that others will join in supporting their cause, recognizing that every contribution brings them closer to their objective. With the dedicated efforts of DCI’s Capital Campaign Committee and ongoing community support, DCI is confident in achieving their goal, ensuring accessible, essential mental health care and wellness services for those in need.

Brooke Meyer, Northwest Bank Manager for St. Marys’ Offices said, “Northwest Bank is pleased to contribute to the Dickinson Center project in St. Marys. It will be a great addition to our community with all the services they have to offer.”
