Cayuga Counseling Services, an Auburn-based agency, has secured a federal grant of $2.9 million to pioneer Cayuga County’s inaugural community treatment and service center dedicated to children grappling with trauma.
The Citizen reports the five-year funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will underpin the center’s mission to aid children who have faced traumatic events, including abuse or a family member’s death.
Set to commence operations by January 2024 at 17 Genesee St., the center will also render community and at-home services, ensuring easy accessibility for affected children.
Collaborative efforts will see the involvement of various local institutions, including the Auburn Police Department and four local school districts.
