The Independent Educational Consultants Association Foundation has awarded a $5,000.00 grant to Mountain Valley in support of MVTC’s visual arts center renovation. For more than twenty years, the IECA Foundation has served as the charitable arm of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, the nation’s leading professional organization for educational advisors in private practice. The Foundation leverages knowledge, professional skills and funds provided by IECA members, sponsors, and donors to help students map pathways to success.

Each year grants are made to programs and projects that produce pragmatic, measurable results for young people whose needs are often not met. Mountain Valley has well-served a large number of referrals from IECA members around the country over the years, and by awarding this generous grant the Foundation recognizes the remarkable work being done in Plainfield with adolescents suffering from debilitating anxiety and OCD. In addition, the fact that MVTC has integrated visual arts into its menu of treatment modalities resonated with the Foundation’s Grants Committee, and was excited, therefore, to honor Mountain Valley as one of their three 2018-2019 grant recipients.

Thanks to this thoughtful grant from the IECA Foundation, coupled with the generous donations from other foundations and thoughtful MVTC parents, the arts center renovation is on schedule to be completed by our 8th Annual Reunion/Summer Celebration on July 20th.  We are extremely grateful to all donors for their support of Mountain Valley!
