NAMI Pomona Valley is joining NAMI Greater Los Angeles County (NAMI GLAC)! Recognized by NAMI California and NAMI National, NAMI GLAC is comprised of six chapters coming together to serve approximately 70% of the Los Angeles County area. By uniting the San Fernando Valley, Glendale, San Gabriel Valley, South Bay, Pomona Valley, and Long Beach areas, NAMI GLAC gives each chapter the freedom to best represent and serve their respective areas while combining resources and providing a singular vision to address the mental health needs of Los Angeles County residents.
What does this mean for NAMI Pomona Valley? We will retain our web address, helpline number, and social media accounts. Our support group location will be the same as well as our mailing address. We will still have the same local leadership, staff, and amazing volunteers to continue providing you our existing mental health services. We are still a nonprofit but will ultimately lose our 501c3 status as we will be represented by GLAC as the official NAMI affiliate (don’t worry, your donations are still tax-deductable!). There may be some changes down the line but ultimately we will keep everything you know and love about NAMI Pomona Valley.
We look forward all the new opportunities, partnerships, and support that comes with being part of NAMI GLAC! We hope to grow our membership and expand our programs to uderserved populations within our local community. Now is an incredibly exciting time to formally join NAMI Pomona Valley and help us shape the future making mental health for all a reality. We are better together, #together4MH.
