PLACES collaborates with partners that include service providers, funders, donors and Board of Trustees members.

Service Providers

The staff members at PLACES collaborate with mental health agencies, homeless shelters and other community organizations to meet the needs of our residents, clients and tenants. Our mutual goal is to help the people we serve realize their individual potential and gain more independence.

Learn more about our Service Providers.


The majority of our funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board for Montgomery County. The remainder comes from resident fees and tenant rents, Montgomery County HOME funds, individual contributions and other sources such as grants from private and corporate foundations and other agencies.

Because of the rising demand for services in the community and reductions in funding, PLACES welcomes individual contributions from generous donors in the community. Individual donors can:

  • Contribute directly to PLACES either by donating online with the link below or by sending a check
  • Shop at Kroger and enroll in Kroger Community Rewards so PLACES can earn cash back
  • Respond to our annual solicitation for the Holiday Party for residents, clients, tenants and their families by contacting the executive director
  • Contribute to our endowment fund, the Heart and Home Legacy Society established through The Dayton Foundation
  • Make a planned charitable gift

Board of Trustees

The PLACES Board of Trustees consists of seven to 11 members who meet six times a year, providing leadership, governance and direction on matters of policy. The board is voluntary and includes primary and secondary consumers of mental health services and concerned members of the business, professional and volunteer communities. Trustees have a genuine concern for individuals with mental illness, including the homeless, and an interest in mental health agencies.
