Providence Service Corporation California Subsidiary Awarded $1.5 Million Contract Under State's Mental Health Services Act
Date:2/19/2009

TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that its California entity has been awarded a $1.5 million annual contract to operate a consumer-run adult mental health wellness center in Orange County, California. The contract is being funded through the state's Mental Health Services Act, approved by California voters as Proposition 63.

"Our home and community based delivery model is very much aligned with Orange County initiatives to transform their public mental health system," stated Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO. "This unique program will utilize a consumer-driven advisory board made up of consumers, advocates and members of the community to help direct the recovery-focused services."

The contract is anticipated to be effective May 1, 2009 and is subject to final negotiations and approvals. The center is anticipated to serve 100 consumers per day.

Proposition 63, officially known as the Mental Health Services Act, was enacted in November 2004 to help fund mental health service programs by levying a 1% tax on incomes of $1.0 million or greater. Funds for the Wellness Center should not be affected by the latest in state budget negotiations.
