Jessie Ball duPont Fund Contributes $120,000 to Mental Health Efforts

Jessie Ball duPont FundThe Jessie Ball duPont Fund has granted $120,000 to Kennedy Krieger to recruit and train social workers who will play a critical role in advancing the Institute’s goal of providing essential mental health services to Kennedy Krieger’s most vulnerable and at-risk children.  These services will be embedded into a wide range of programs designed to serve children with developmental disabilities and will be housed within the Institute’s new building that will help grow current initiatives to meet increased demand; offer patients additional resources in a dedicated, collaborative space that affords better integration and efficiency; and provide children with access to all of the experts they need in one location.
