Organizers and supporters of Issue 28, the 0.5 mill ADAMHS Board renewal levy on the Nov. 3 ballot, are offering their appreciation of the overwhelming support of the community as they continue the work of addressing mental illness and addiction in Tuscarawas County.
By a nearly 2-1 margin, the voting results continued a trend of community support that began in 1982. That year, Tuscarawas County voters approved a new levy for the provision of mental health and addiction treatment, and it has been renewed or replaced continuously since then. Generating $889,000 per year, the funding will help continue a local safety net of resources, providing for children’s mental health services, crisis intervention and care, and housing assistance.
For any questions regarding the ADAMHS Board levy or the services it funds, please contact the ADAMHS Board at 330-364-6488.
