About Us

Service Area: Currently serving Minnesota – Benton, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Sherburne, Stearns, Todd and Wright counties. The organization will expand as the need is indicated and as funding is available.

Organization: The original A-D-A-Msm began in January 1995 as a program of the St. Cloud Area Family YMCA. Due to the ever-increasing demand for more information on ADHD, the program spun off from the YMCA in December 1997 to form the new independent not-for-profit organization A-D-A-Msm, Attention Deficit Awareness of Minnesota, Inc.

What We Offer: The organization does not provide direct services. A-D-A-Msm provides information and education resources on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related behavioral, educational, medical and social issues that may accompany the disorder.

Non-Profit: A-D-A-Msm is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization and receives funding through grants, fund-raising, gifts and donations. Dollars can also be designated through United Way.

Board of Directors: The Board of Directors of A-D-A-Msm is committed to the mission of this organization. The board currently consists of members who have knowledge and experience on ADHD. Their names are:

Peggy Imholte – Board President A-D-A-Msm

 James F. Lewis – Board Vice President A-D-A-Msm

 Lee Gehrls – Board Secretary/Treasurer A-D-A-Msm

         Serves as Volunteer Resource Development Coordinator A-D-A-Msm
