Over the past month Chartiers Center has received many acts of kindness from our friends and local community. On this page we would like to highlight and thank them for their support. The work of our friends has kept our staff safe while working in our residential programs, as members of our mobile outreach teams and while working in the office. This support has enabled Chartiers’ staff to provide treatment and services to anyone struggling with the mental health, especially during these difficult times.
THANK YOU to: (current through May 21st)
Thank you Global Links for the donations of masks, gloves and gowns. These supplies are used by the staff in our residential programs and the office staff. Thank you for your support to keep us safe during this pandemic.
THANK YOU! We are grateful to our donors for their support on Giving Tuesday. The monies raised will be used to provide food for our consumers and will be distributed by our Homeless to Housing Outreach team. We will continue accepting donations to provide food and other resources for our consumers in need. Thank you for joining together.
THANK YOU to: (current through May 6th)
A special thank you to Satish and Visala Mulak for their generous $500 donation. The money will be used to start up a mobile Mary’s Market to distribute bags of food to our consumers in need who can’t get out.
UPDATE: We are happy to report Mobile Mary has hit the ground running. The idea of the mobile market has been well received by our staff. To date we have distributed 24 bags of food and are preparing to deliver another 12 bags this week. Having food on hand to give to clients has helped bridge the gap to food insecurity (at its time of need) and is opening doors for our staff to provide other resources to their clients.
A big shout out to one of our employees, Beth and her daughter Kate, for making chicken noodle soup and homemade rolls to be distributed to our consumers in need. The soup has been frozen and will be distributed by our Housing Outreach Team.
From one of Chartiers Center’s employees – “Shout out to our Fearless Leader, Sue Coyle for keeping us SAFE and WORKING! I love working for an agency that understands our clients need us more than ever right now!!
