In celebration of August as National Wellness Month, the Paramount City Council recognized three non-profit organizations that serve the community at its Aug. 2 meeting. Community Family Guidance Center helps young people with mental health issues. Pathways offers caregiving, hospice, and grief counseling. Su Casa provides services to those suffering domestic abuse. The California Municipal Finance Authority recently donated $145,000 to the city to be given to non-profits in town and the City Council directed that the funds be split between these three groups, all of which work to improve the physical, social, and mental well-being of Paramount residents.
