Fountain House has a 72-year history of advancing and advocating for rights and for inclusion of people living with mental illness. This is the next step on the journey toward full civic inclusion and civil rights for our community and for the wider world. We cannot build a world in which the marginalized and overlooked are regarded with dignity and respect and receive equal rights, if we are also not addressing underlying racism and injustice at the core of inequity in our society and in our organization. So, together, in the coming weeks and months, we will discover what it means to transform our community and to create a new culture of inclusion at Fountain House. I look forward to engaging you all in this essential work.
Fountain House continues to monitor the status of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic so we can share vital information with our community and will continue to do so over the coming weeks and months. We understand that this crisis strikes directly at the heart of our model that is built on social connection, and we have had to make difficult decisions quickly to protect the health and safety of our members, staff, partners and supporters, as well as the wider NYC community.
