Now: St Joseph County Board Of Commissioners Delays Signing Contract For Mental Health Crisis Center

A Donation to The Food Bank at St. Josephs Church

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners delayed signing a contract to implement a mental health crisis response center at its regular meeting, Monday morning.

The center was proposed by the St. Joseph County Department of Health, the City of South Bend, and Oaklawn.

According to Board President Carl Baxmeyer, the project is expected to cost over $5.5 million to build and operate for three years.

The project is not fully funded and could cost taxpayers an additional $900,000 to operate every year after the initial three years, he said.

“We want to ensure that this process is not rushed and is well thought out,” said Baxmeyer. “The money to fund the project is not being taken away however we would like to ensure that there is sufficient funding to ensure that the program endures far into the future.”

Advocates in favor of the center worry the delay will put the center’s future in jeopardy. In a press release sent to ABC57 following the meeting, Faith in Indiana, an advocacy group made up of local religious leaders that’s called for greater mental health resources, said “Lives will be lost as a result of this decision.”

“We are deeply disappointed with the decision of the Commissioner today to block funding for a crisis response center,” Rev. Chip Roush of First Unitarian Church said in the release. “Their disregard for the needs of our family members in crisis is deeply disturbing.”

The Food Bank brought two truckloads worth of groceries to the Mishawaka pantry site and handed out 300 boxes of food during an emergency mobile distribution event.

David Wise of Mishawaka was there and says he relies on the Mishawaka pantry. Yes, I do. I go here a lot and during Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, they have lunch, nice hot meals for us.

While no hot meals were served today, Brandy Love said, we put in food that would, If you have a home, you can eat. If you dont have a home, you can eat. We have peanut butter jelly bread, we have canned protein, canned Spaghetti Os and ravioli.

Luis came to the pantry because he is on a forced unpaid break from his job related to the RV industry. The help is very, very good. Its good when you dont have anything in the house, and the moneys tight like it has been.

    Free Summer Lunch For Youth

    No child should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from. During the summer, when kids are out of school, it can be very difficult for low-income families to provide consistent, nutritious meals for their children. St. Josephs recognizes this challenge and serves over 19,000 free lunches to local children at several different sites around Grand Forks and East Grand Forks in June, July, and part of August, to ensure that no child goes hungry.

    The St. Josephâs Food Bank began as the brain child of Father Gary Gordon in 1990 to help people and families in need. What started as a goodwill gesture mushroomed into an operation with 6 volunteers within 6 years. By 2008 it became obvious that the St. Josephâs Parish church basement was no longer practical and new space was needed.

    In 2020 we distributed food to 968 registered individuals, who each received monthly food support. Today, we are distributing food to over 1400 registered individuals. The pandemic and inflationary economic environment have had a dramatic impact on our community and unfortunately the number of people in need is sure to increase.

    We also provide support to the following agencies by donating food for them to distribute: Chehalis First Nation, Leqâaâ:Mel First Nation , Mission Community Services , My House, Union Gospel Mission , Copper Hall, and Glory House â Recovery House.

    We supply and deliver emergency hampers and provide food every day for homeless street distribution. These deliveries are done by St. Josephâs Food Bank on Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and by UGM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The food that is distributed daily to the homeless is supplied by Save-On-Foods as part of the no waste program. Excess non-human perishable food is distributed daily to local farmers and used as animal feed.

    Our Volunteers Add Value

    2021 Donations

    A total of 76,480 meals were provided to Food Bank clients in 2021. The total value of the food was around $422,000. Almost half of the food provided to clients was purchased with donated money and the other half was made up of food generously donated by the public:

    FOOD BOUGHT WITH MONETARY DONATIONS – $203,000

    FOOD DONATED – $219,000

    Food and money are not the only donations. Our local volunteers, ranging in number from 40 to 50 per year, donate their time and expertise at no cost to the Food Bank or to the community. Without them, St. Joseph’s Community Food Bank could not operate:

    HOURS OF VOLUNTEER LABOUR PER YEAR – 16,000

    DOLLAR VALUE OF DONATED LABOUR – $181,000

    Donated volunteer labour represents almost 41% of the dollar value of the food provided. St. Joseph’s Community Food Bank thanks the community and all its volunteers for their ongoing contributions.
