COVID-19 Response

Mountain Resource Center is seeing an unprecedented need for services in our community due to the pandemic.. Mental health services are in especially high demand as our clients deal with the impacts of the crisis. We have seen an increase in requests for supportive services, such as stress and fear management. For our families who are struggling with the new reality of quarantines, job loss and children out of school, our Parents as Teachers and Circle of Parents programs are here to help. One mother stated, it was “all that she had” for support. In addition, more families than ever need help with basic expenses, and we are providing food to more than 200 families on average per week. To meet these growing needs, please consider a donation to our Impact Your Community campaign. Your donation will make a critical difference in helping us provide these life-saving services. We truly appreciate any support you are able to give.


We can help with food, emergency financial & utility assistance, family education, & veterans support.
