In 1950, a group of five young Los Gatos matrons was helping a small mental health sanitarium in the Los Gatos mountains called Tre Monte.
They assisted with reading and writing and gave gifts of bed sheets and other necessities. The need was great and, at the urging of Reg Loftus, director of the struggling facility, they formed an organization and called it Tre Monte Auxiliary.
What began over 60 years ago has evolved to nearly 180 volunteer women raising funds for four local mental health agencies with our cumulative fundraising efforts exceeding $9 million.
Valle Monte League currently supports the following local mental health agencies: Family & Children Services (since 1954), The Centre for Living with Dying (since 1972), Alzheimer’s Activity Center (since 1986) and Services for Brain Injury (since 2009). Our cumulative fundraising efforts exceed $9 million dollars.
