Congratulations to Lidia Bunce for being named WellFully’s August Employee of the Month.

Lidia came to WellFully in December 2021 as a Youth Development Specialist, with most of her time spent working on the Addiction Recovery Unit (ARU).

Lidia is really great with the kids and handles her job like a champ!. She has an easy rapport with the kids and ability to quickly gain their respect. Working well with the kids and other staff just seems to come natural to her.

Even before becoming a Youth Care Staff Trainer in June, she has always been there to step up when other staff need help or have questions.


At WellFully Premier Adolescent Care Center, we believe that continuing education after high school gives all young people the opportunity to enhance their lives and their future. The WellFully Scholarship program gives every youth that come through our programs an opportunity to better themselves through education.

With the help of sponsors su ch as Black Hills Energy, Denny Menholt Auto Group and Health Concepts, over $5,000 will be offered by to any High School Junior or Senior or current college student who are or have been a participant in any WellFully program (including WellFully‘s new Adolescent Crisis Care Center) and have a desire to attend a college or university or a technical school.

The deadline to apply for the 2022 scholarships is October 7, 2022, with award announcements to be made in mid-October, and will be presented at the annual WellFully “We Believe in Kids” benefit dinner to be held October 21.


Clean clothes, shoes that fit, and a backpack stocked with school supplies...most kids don’t need to think twice about getting these necessities when they start school. But, for the kids at WellFully, these items and the self-confidence they bring are hopelessly out of reach.That’s why we’re having a clothing drive!

...and it’s so easy to donate! - Just stop by WellFully for a Clothing Drive tag matched to a child’s sizes and favorite colors. Then when you are out taking advantage of the back-to-school sales, pick up an item or two for our school kids at WellFully.
