Our vision: Mentally Healthy People in a healthy Society
Goals: Provide Advocacy, Education, Programs and Services
Hope: Work with communities to achieve our goals through Education, Fundraising, Sponsorship and Volunteerism.
Our vocational work programs provide…
A sense of purpose to our participants on a daily basis
Self esteem and self worth are enhanced by the responsibility they show in attending work regularly
A sense of belonging to the community as a whole
The participants take pride in the fact they are able to work at the store, in the quilting program, or as part of the “Nest” staff (consisting of cooks, clean-up and janitorial). All of the participants working in our programs are doing so voluntarily. For their efforts, they receive a small honorarium
