Spencer, Iowa — Seasons Center for Behavioral Health, based in Spencer has received a large grant to help them serve people.
This week, the State of Iowa, Crime Victim Assistance Board voted to award Seasons Center with nearly $400,000 in Victim Services Support Program (VSS) funds to expand services to crime victims not previously served, those who are underserved, and those who are not accessing traditional victim services.
Seasons Executive Director Kim Scorza says they are excited and grateful to be chosen as a recipient of these grant funds. She says that the funding will allow them to better partner with well-established victim services agencies in providing therapy to their clients, as well as providing training and resources to victim service agencies’ employees.
The proposed project will be both an expansion of existing behavioral health services provided by Seasons and the implementation of new program services. The service area will encompass 19 counties in northwest Iowa: Buena Vista, Calhoun, Carroll, Cherokee, Clay, Crawford, Dickinson, Emmet, Ida, Lyon, Monona, O’Brien, Osceola, Palo Alto, Plymouth, Pocahontas, Sac, Sioux, and Woodbury. With this funding, Seasons will hire four Trauma Therapists, dedicated to the implementation of program services and activities.
Seasons staff say that additional information on program services will be provided in the upcoming weeks.
