Villa of Hope awarded grant for telehealth services  

Villa of Hope was awarded a $15,000 grant to support its telehealth services for substance use.  

The funding will allow Villa of Hope to purchase equipment for its clinicians to engage efficiently in telehealth, HIPAA compliant Zoom licenses and appointment reminder software.  

Funding was provided to New York through the Federal Substance Abuse Prevention & Treatment Block Grant Supplemental award and administered by the state Office of Addiction Services and Supports. 

Villa of Hope has one behavioral health clinic location in Rochester, along with construction taking place in Greece for The Steven Center for Behavioral Health and Gregory E. Polisseni Living Hope Treatment Center set to open soon that will serve youths as young as 16 years old.   

Villa of Hope’s Mental Health Outpatient Clinic offers evaluation and treatment for all ages, including individual and family treatment, medication management, medication assisted therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as psychological testing.  

“Villa of Hope is proud to be a recipient of this telehealth grant that will allow us to continue care that addresses some of the social, economic and health barriers that stand in the way of receiving treatment for mental health services,” said Lindsay Gozzi-Theobald, the agency’s chief program officer. “This grant will also enable us to invest into technology and headsets that will make connecting with our clinicians for appointments more seamless for our client base. We are grateful for the ability to give our community more options and choices when it comes to how you access your care.”
