Substance Abuse Fund

The Montrose Community Foundation administers a Substance-Abuse Grant Program funded through the generous donation from a private donor.  In the past, the fund has provided scholarships to the Grand Junction Salvation Army Treatment Center for local individuals who have repeated criminal justice offenses.  The Foundation has received assistance in this process through the Montrose District Attorney, District 7 Probation Office, and the Public Defender who select the eligible candidates as an alternative to a prison sentence.
