PAU Receives LACF Grant to Support Telehealth in Local Communities

Wednesday, January 27, 2021
 

The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF) recently awarded $177,600 in grants to thirty-one nonprofits based in, or serving, the Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View communities. Palo Alto University was awarded funding to support the university’s capacity to use telehealth technology, as well as teaching and research that makes a difference in creating healthier communities.

The funding was provided through the Foundation’s Community Impact Grant Program and its Nonprofit Relief Fund, which supports organizations assisting those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
“We are deeply grateful to the Los Altos Community Foundation for its generous support,” said PAU President Maureen O'Connor. "We are committed to being at the forefront of providing exceptional training to the next generation of mental health professionals and to providing community mental health services through our clinic, the Gronowski Center. This grant enhances our capacity to use tele-therapy in our important work, which increasingly depends on technology in both training and delivery of services.”
 
The Gronowski Center is a psychology training clinic dedicated to providing compassionate counseling and psychotherapy services to adults, older adults, couples, adolescents, children, and families in Santa Clara County and San Mateo County. 
 
The clinic offers services on a sliding scale basis as a part of its community mission. Services are provided by doctoral level psychology students under the supervision of licensed psychologists. Learn more about The Gronowski Center here.
