Collecting good for a greater good
Wesley Nyberg did not hesitate when a friend asked him to volunteer at the Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas (MHASCK). He jumped right in. “It sounded like a good opportunity to help the community,” says Nyberg, transportation design engineer at PEC. MHASCK is a non-profit organization that provides services such as adult case management, attendant care, senior companion program, housing, counseling and more. It has been serving the citizens of South Central Kansas since 1957. The organization’s goal is to achieve a just, humane and healthy society where all people are treated with respect, dignity and the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential free from stigma and prejudice. Its mission is to empower and assist youth, families and adults in the community to achieve optimal mental health and wellness through education, advocacy and service.
