Oaklawn offers inpatient treatment, psychiatric services, therapy, care facilitation, skills training and other services. “This donation helps support the many programs that Oaklawn offers, such as Camp Mariposa, a camp for kids whose parents have a substance use disorder, suicide prevention programs, and adult assistance programs,” Tarman said. “We are very grateful for Centier’s support as they serve on our boards and support our fundraising initiatives.”

Centier Bank Goshen Branch Manager Adriana Bontreger also serves on the Oaklawn Foundation board. “As a true community bank, Centier is honored to partner with Oaklawn Foundation and provide vital mental health services and programs to families in need,” Bontreger said.
