Monarch receives $150,000 grant from The Cannon Foundation to increase mental health crisis services in Lumberton

Monarch received a $150,000 grant from The Cannon Foundation to support the renovation and expansion of its Tanglewood Arbor Facility-Based Crisis Center in Lumberton. The Center provides the first step in life-changing treatment for adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis or who are in need of non-hospital substance use detoxification services.

The extensive renovation and expansion of Tanglewood Arbor will grow the facility from 11 beds to 16, increasing Monarch’s capacity to care for those struggling with a mental health crisis. The capital project is a partnership between Monarch and Eastpointe, the region’s managed care organization. The Center is designed as an appropriate, time-limited alternative to emergency department visits and hospitalization for an individual in crisis.

“We are grateful to The Cannon Foundation for its support of this project. The renovation and expansion of Tanglewood Arbor will enhance the region’s mental health care continuum and allow us to provide critical services as we help people on their road to recovery,” said Monarch President/CEO Dr. Peggy Terhune.  “We are excited about the impact this additional space will have on our ability to meet the needs of this community and we are thankful for The Cannon Foundation’s investment in it.”

The renovation and expansion project will be completed this summer. Tanglewood Arbor Facility-Based Crisis Center is located at 207 West 29th Street in Lumberton, adjacent to Southeastern Regional Medical Center.

The Cannon Foundation is an independent foundation established in 1943 by Charles A. Cannon, President and Chairman of Cannon Mills Company for 50 years.
