The Board of the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau announced Friday they are purchasing and renovating a building to serve as the new home for all of their operations and programs. This project is made possible in part due to grant support of $800,010 from North Central Health Services (NCHS). Although this grant has been approved, the grant is still contingent upon the Youth Service Bureau obtaining the appropriate zoning variance for the property. The primary responsibility of NCHS is to operate River Bend Hospital, a non-profit inpatient psychiatric hospital licensed and certified by the Indiana FSSA Division of Mental Health and Addiction. NCHS also is a grant making organization providing primarily capital grants to 501(c)(3) organizations that share the NCHS commitment to health and the development of healthy communities in Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White counties.
The Montgomery County Community Foundation (MCCF) has been a leader in moving this project forward as well, making an award of $100,000 to the project. 
Kelly Taylor, Executive Director of the Montgomery County Community Foundation stated, “The Montgomery County Community Foundation Board is excited to play an important role in helping the Youth Service Bureau’s dream come true to have a new facility. The Youth Service Bureau provides many valuable services to our local youth and we know our grant award for the new facility will help enhance these services throughout our community.”
