Donations Enabling Telehealth

The Hume Center, like the majority of mental health providers, has moved most services toward telehealth (video meetings) to help our clients continue to receive services during the Stay at Home Order. While many clients already had the required technology, several did not. We were thrilled to receive a private donation to kick off our Telehealth Fund that allowed us to buy tablets for the first few clients who needed a digital device to access this service. Not only did this device allow the clients to start receiving therapy over video, it also allowed those individuals to access other digital experiences to help them connect to support systems, loved ones, education, and entertainment.

We are looking to expand our Telehealth Fund to be able to provide needed technology for our consumers. If you are interested in donating to this fund at this critical time, please use the PayPal button located on the donations page on our website here.
