Porter-Starke Services held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new facility in Portage.

Among those attending the ceremony were U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky and Portage Mayor Olga Velazquez. The event was hosted by Porter-Starke Services and the Portage Chamber of Commerce.

Visclosky secured $550,000 in federal funding in fiscal year 2010 for the new Portage site.

“I strongly believe that we all deserve an opportunity to live the most fulfilling, productive life we can. Northwest Indiana is fortunate to have an organization dedicated to helping our residents do just that,” Visclosky said. “I’d like to thank the leadership and staff of Porter-Starke Services for your continued commitment and dedication to the people and communities of Northwest Indiana.”

Porter-Starke Services has provided behavioral healthcare services to patients in Porter and Starke counties since 1975. The new Portage facility expands Porter-Starke’s Portage presence with additional group and individual counseling space and a community room large enough for trainings, education, and presentations.
