New Foundation Center works hard to help members recover from serious mental illness so that they can find value and meaning in their lives. Supported employment, health management, social skills, and creative arts are some of the programs that foster recovery. New Foundation Center is a life line to those it helps. About fifty individuals and a couple small families benefit from supportive housing. Some were homeless before they came to New Foundation Center.

I have talked with members and understand the important role of our organization. Some members talk about how they were homeless before coming to New Foundation Center. Some individuals progress sufficiently that they are able to take on employment, some to move on to independent living.

The organization works vigorously to make its dollars work and provide the best services. New Foundation would like to serve more people. With more funding and consistent funding this would be possible. I would expand resources of the organization so that more people could be helped and enrichment programs could be increased.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & served on the Board, visited member housing and saw the importance of our work, worked on fundraisers and met other dedicated volunteers who support NFC because of its contribution to our community.
