It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is already upon us. While many of us look forward to this time of year with wonder and delight, the cold winter months can present challenges for many of our community members who face housing instability and homelessness. In this vein, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with the Rockland County Department of Social Services and Helping Hands to be part of the new Warming Center called Safe Haven now open for Rockland County residents. MHA of Rockland will be providing peers, people with lived experience of mental health and/or substance use issues, to work in the center Monday through Friday. These individuals will offer encouragement, support, assessment services and linkage to resources as a part of an organized effort to tackle homelessness in Rockland County. Our selection as a valued partner is yet another example of our innovation, our reputation, and our proven ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
From our MHA family to yours: we wish you peace, love, and prosperity in the coming year. May your days be filled with joy and contentment. Thank you for supporting our mission driven services, and joining us on our journey as we connect people, educate families and rebuild lives.
