2018 Year in Review

By Stephanie Madison, President & CEO

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s important to reflect back and celebrate just a few of the many incredible accomplishments that we have achieved as an agency. It is truly our privilege to positively touch the lives of more than 5,000 community members a year, through more than 36 different programs and services designed to promote hope, offer help, and partner in healing. We could not be the agency we are today without our dedicated staff, committed Board Members, and wonderfully generous volunteers and donors. Please take time this holiday season to celebrate you, and all the ways in which you have supported MHA’s success in providing life-saving services. Below are just a few of our noteworthy accomplishments:

MHA won the 2018 Service Provider of the Year Award from the Rockland Economic Development Corporation
MHA opened the first integrated pharmacy in the Hudson Valley and the 3rd in NY State
MHA secured $705,000 in new funding through grants, contracts and fundraising
MHA was chosen to operate a gold star standard program for children known as Hi Fidelity Wrap Around
MHA was granted a new five year contract through Adult Career & Continuing Education Services to provide vocational services and supports to adults and young adults
MHA was chosen to operate a vocational program for youth known as Work Readiness Internship Development Experience (or WRIDE)
MHA, through CBHS, is now participating in a $2.6M Behavioral Health Care Collaborative grant, one of only two grant awards in the Hudson Valley region

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 all you do and all you are on our journey as we connect people, educate families and rebuild lives.
