Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - A new mental health and wellness center still in the works for Duluth has received a major helping hand from a city agency.

The Duluth Economic Development Authority awarded the Miller–Dwan Foundation $350,000 Wednesday night.

The money will be used for the $5M, 28,000 square foot Amberwing facility. The center will be a Duluth–based outpatient facility providing access to mental health and chemical dependency treatment and ongoing support to children and young adults from birth through age 25.

The Miller–Dwan foundation is currently fundraising for the center through a campaign called "Give Voice Now."

Officials hope to break ground on July 1st.
