Ways to Give | Barber National Institute

We continue to carry out our mission of providing life-sustaining care to our most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 epidemic. To maintain the highest quality of essential services for our children, adults and families, the Barber National Institute is facing additional costs that were unbudgeted for this emergency.

These costs include additional staffing to care for adults in our group homes; additional disinfectant supplies and Personal Protective Equipment such as gloves, gowns and masks; and new technology to enable our behavioral health therapists to continue vital mental health care.

Your donation, which is always appreciated, will have an added impact as our dedicated staff work to respond to this crisis.

Update: The CARES Act passed by Congress provides for an additional $300 deduction for taxpayers who do not itemize but use the standard deduction. Check with your tax filer or financial advisor for more information.
