#ACBSP4Change 2021 to Benefit Miami’s Citrus Health

ACBSP and Peregrine Global Foundation Partner to Donate $5,000.

Citrus Health, one of the largest mental and behavioral health providers in South Florida, is the 2021 recipient of #ACBSP4Change. Now in its sixth year, the #ACBSP4Change initiative allows us to give back to our conference host city and recognize those companies that make a difference in the lives of area residents.

Peregrine Global Foundation has offered to match ACBSP’s $2,500 donation again this year, for a total gift of $5,000 to Citrus Health.

The Marketing Committee selected Citrus Health as the 2021 recipient of #ACBSP4Change, specifically for the way in which they serve the community by taking a total wellness approach with each client, across a broad range of health services and programs.

The Citrus Health Network, Inc., was founded in 1979 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community mental health center dedicated to serving mentally ill individuals and their families. Citrus provides services to adults and children across the spectrum of mental and behavioral health needs. In 2004, they became a Federally Qualified Health Center, expanding its services to include care for primary health in addition to behavioral health.

“We are honored to receive the award and are very appreciative of the donation, which will go toward helping vulnerable and under-served populations.” — Leslie Veiga, Communications Director & Special Projects Manager, Citrus Health Network, Inc.

Citrus Health Network was represented by more than 70 staff members, family members, and friends at the 2018 Miami-Dade County Out of the Darkness Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Citrus served as a Gold Sponsor for the event and was one of the Top 10 teams in fundraising on the day of the walk.

Mario Jardon, C.E.O. of Citrus Health Network, Inc.; Maria Alonso, C.O.O.; and Leslie Veiga, Communications Director & Special Projects Manager, will accept the check at a luncheon on Saturday, June 26, during ACBSP Conference 2021.
