Funding for Thomas M. Wernert Center

The Lovell Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation recently awarded a grant of $34,700 to the Thomas M. Wernert Center, an organization which helps people and their families with mental illness by pushing back against stigma and providing a supportive, healing environment. The funds will help TMWC expand their art program, which includes art education, socializing, and classes in digital photography, quilting, embroidery and other subjects. TMWC Executive Director Kelly Skinner says, “The Lovell Fund [grant] will provide our members with opportunities to explore various art mediums they have requested for many years but until now have only dreamt about.”
