What do you think of when thinking of fine wine and delicious food? When its paired with a fantastic cause, it can be seen as the package deal. Jeremy Goldstein, Omar Khan, and Jim Finkel hosted this wonderful feast coupled with wine to support the Fountain House.
The Fountain House is an organization that is dedicated to help women and men that battle mental illness. Jeremy Goldstein is on the board of directors with the Fountain House and takes great pride in the overall accomplishments that the Fountain House has done.
In 1944, six people came together and formed the group, “We Are Not Alone”. These six people, whom were all patients at the Rockland State Hospital in New York, met there and give life to what is known as the Fountain House today. Follow Jeremy on Twitter
It wasn’t until 1948, that they purchased a physical dwelling to conduct their meetings. It was then when the Fountain House got it’s name.
The Fountain House gives people that suffer from mental illness a new lease on life. They teach them skills that are necessary in everyday life. Those that suffer from mental illness often feel secluded and their confidence is low. But the Fountain House builds up their self esteem, help to educate them, teach them how to stand and to let them know that they do matter. The people that flock there yearly helps run and work within the Fountain House until they are ready to transition outside of there and gain employment within New York.
