It is good to come together and enjoy a delicious meal in the cause of supporting a particular event or project. And that is why Jeremy Goldstein together with Omar Khan and Jim Finkel hosted a wine dinner in support of Fountain House. Fountain House is a charitable organization which is dedicated to helping the recovery of men and women suffering from mental disorders. The foundation has been supporting these patients for over seventy years. It was founded in the year 1944 by six people who initially met at Rockland State Hospital in Orangeburg when they were patients. They initially formed an association and named it ‘We Are Not Alone.’
Fountain House aims after helping in the recovery of patients with mental disorders by providing them with opportunities to learn, work as well as contribute their talents through a mutual; support from the community. Some of the roles it undertakes include operating community health projects throughout New York City, developing innovative programs which are based on shared knowledge and research concerning recovery from mental conditions. The foundation also collaborates with local and global community members to teach and inspire the Fountain House Model to international organizations. It also advocates for people living with mental illnesses to improve practices and perceptions.
