The Momentum Center for Social Engagement receives most of its funding from Community Mental Health. Last spring the community approved a dedicated mental health millage for CMH. Extended Grace was selected by CMH to be the recipient of funds in the Tri-Cities area of Ottawa County. That means Tri-Cities residents tax dollars are coming directly back to serve Tri-Cities area residents.
The Momentum Center is open based on activities. Monthly calendars are available and everyone is invited to stop in and see what it's all about. Membership is restricted to individuals with a mental illness, addiction or other disability. Membership costs $1 per year and allows individuals to participate in scheduled activities and events. Almost everything is offered without any additional charge, but some activities may include a nominal fee to participate.
Within the Momentum Center there is a pool table, air hockey table, Wii, board games and a computer bay. The Momentum Center offers classes in art, exercise, breathing, and self-development. It also arranges offsite events and activities and provides transportation so that individuals can participate in Extended Grace events and Town Hall Meetings.
The Momentum Center is also a place for anyone to learn about resources within the community.
