Alexander Youth Network recently surpassed its $500,000 annual campaign goal by $22,535, including corporate matches, officials said.

The money will help the nonprofit continue and expand the organization’s work with children who have emotional or behavior problems. Last year, Alexander served 7,330 children with emotional and behavioral challenges across the state.

Organizers said they expect the amount raised to increase as more donations come in over the next few weeks.

“We are so humbled and grateful to the community for the financial resources that have kept Alexander Youth Network thriving since 1888,” CEO Craig Bass said. “With this kind of support, we can make getting behavioral health care is as easy as visiting the Minute Clinic for a sore throat.” Mark Price
