Indeed "a new foundation" for us seeking meaningful lives inspite of mental disability. This is a place where I'm learning concrete steps to a structured lifestyle. In other words, freedom from anxieties of the world & within. Truly grateful for individuals, full of love & dedication in changing lives for the best.

My son was diagnosed with a severe chronic mental illness in 1999. He was in a State Approved School when I received a call about possible graduation. I said no and had numerous interviews in April 2001 to find an alternative program. I first learned about New Foundation Center (formerly Wilpower) in April 2001 when I interviewed, was impressed by their program and put my son on the waiting list. With Counsel's help we received approval for a residential program until he aged out of school services in 2003.
In 2004 my son was placed in a setting that was not appropriate for the care that was needed at the time. With the help of a great advocate and professional working with and for people with mental illness, Jay was most helpful in recommending transferring my son to an Intermediate Care Facility. I had interviewed there in April 2001 as well. This program works specifically for those with mental health needs. With past records and proper care , the team was able to get state approval for New Foundation Center in April 2007.

My son has been in many programs, and one thing I have learned on this long journey is that sometimes people have their own agenda. The agenda for the team at NFC working with my son is to provide a chance for recovery and allow him to have his medical, financial, and appropriate housing needs meet in a safe environment. Thank you to all on the New Foundation Center Team.

continue to pass the word on about the great work New Foundation Center is doing and within our networks, work to stop funding cuts to programs like this that are one of the most valuable assets within our community.

New Foundations Center is a wonderful place of refuge for my family member who would be spending many days lost and alone without it. The people at New Foundations really care and help the members have some semblance of a normal life. At New Foundations, members have therapy, life skill lessons, art projects, outings and great friendships. The members all look forward to going and learning something everyday.

The organization was started by my closest chilhood friend. Through 20+ years of working for NFC, I've gained an insight to the personal struggle of people with mental illness and the impact of the disease on families, health care, housing, and public perception. I am seeing a new awareness and understanding of the disease. For our members, with safe permanent housing, counseling, job coaching, and a supportive day program in the Clubhouse, the focus of managing their disease is now towards recovery. It is a partnership of member, trained staff, and volunteer Board, that provides the best service, compassion and hope. I am continually proud to be associated with this organization!
