BERLIN – Two grants totaling $250,000 are expected to expand mental health services in Worcester County.
On Wednesday, officials with Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services announced the nonprofit had secured $250,000 in grants to fund two clinicians over the course of two years.
Delegate Mary Beth Carozza, a Republican who was elected to represent District 38C four years ago, announced Sunday she will challenge incumbent Sen. Jim Mathias, a Democrat, in the 2018 election.
"I believe it is my calling," Carozza told a large group that gathered Sunday at Ocean City Elementary School.
Carozza, 56, grew up in Ocean City, where her family operated a drive-through restaurant called Beefy’s. She graduated from Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin and the Catholic University of America in Washington, where she earned joint BA and MA degrees.
