Topeka suicide prevention center raises funds to stay open

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2016

A suicide prevention center that serves all but one of Kansas’ 105 counties will remain open after an influx of private donations and help from a state agency.

Headquarters Counseling in Topeka said it needed to raise $90,000 by Dec. 5 to stay open after it lost several grants.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2h0987R) that the organization has met that goal.  The organization said it received $60,000 in private donations. And last Friday, the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services said it could give the organization $25,000 in grant money and suggested it could be used as matching funds.

Headquarters executive director Andy Brown says the online fundraising campaign will continue until Dec. 31 to meet the match offer from the state agency.
