WASHINGTON, August 26, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Give an Hour has received a generous grant from Major League Baseball (MLB) and Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) to help foster healthy family relationships and break the cycle of domestic violence. The “Healthy Relationships Community Grant” will allow Give an Hour to deploy the Emotional Life Skills® (ELS) program, an education family-based model, to teach mental health resiliency and family violence prevention to vulnerable families.
For the past 15 years, Give an Hour has provided no-cost mental health services to our nation’s most honored heroes: military service members, veterans, and their loved ones. Their licensed mental health providers have donated over 325,000 hours valued at $32.5 million since 2005. And recently, Give an Hour has developed its ELS program to teach people about maintaining positive mental health and well-being.
