Everyone deserves access to effective behavioral health care and treatment.
- One in five people in the United States live with a behavioral health condition. Most of us will need behavioral health care at some point in our lives.
- One in eight emergency department visits involves a mental health or substance abuse condition.
- Suicide has grown to become the second highest cause of death for youth 15 to 25.
But there is hope. Your gift today through Hope Grows Here will help increase mental health care and services throughout the MultiCare Behavioral Health Network, the largest comprehensive network of behavioral health care in Washington.
Help increase our capacity to provide hope and healing to our communities, one person at a time.
Your tax-dectuctible gift through Hope Grows Here benefiting MultiCare Behavioral Health Foundation will support:
- Increased virtual mental health care visits.
- Crisis services available at Navos' Mental Health and Wellness Center.
- Food, medication and other vital support services for people living in our supported housing programs.
- Mental health crisis intervention through partnerships with hospitals, law enforcement and behavioral health professionals at urgent and primary care clinics.

- Culturally-informed behavioral health care for communities of color and the LGBTQ community.
- Substance use disorder treatment with programs designed to meet a range of needs from inpatient care to ongoing peer-to-peer counseling.

Other donation needs
The spread of COVID-19 in our state has had a significant impact on individuals, families, businesses and our economy. Many not-for-profit, locally based organizations that provide support services are among the hardest hit financially. That’s why MultiCare will be donating $1 million to help support other community organizations in Pierce County, South King County and the Inland Northwest region during the COVID-19 crisis. We encourage you to support your favorite local charities if you are able. Below are some of the other greatest donation needs today.
MultiCare COVID-19 Response Fund
The MultiCare Foundations established a COVID-19 Response Fund to honor and support caregivers, help provide access to care and address emergent needs as this extraordinary health crisis continues. Contributions have already been used to expand testing sites and intensive care capacity, child care and support for health care workers. Donate today.
Pierce County Connected: COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
