5.8.17 Mental Health Safe Space at Glenstone Village
Thank you to Interfaith Community Services for coming on site to Glenstone Village to host a Mental Health Safe Space training. CAH staff, partner property managers, and tenants left with a better knowledge of mental illness (know the facts), ways to identify potential mental health issues (learn the signs) and with resources to offer as support in various situations (provide help). Mental Health Safe Space seeks to create “Stigma Free Zones” where educated and compassionate community members prevent discrimination and misunderstanding and improve public safety.
5.3.17 Alvord Court Garden and Healthy Home Market
This week, the Healthy Home Market at Alvord Court is made even more bountiful from our own garden! Tenant Volunteers helped to pick assorted vegetables and learned how to prepare and eat them courtesy of NAMI volunteers. Bringing fresh produce into the homes of our tenants supports our mission statement in improving the quality of life for families and their surrounding community.
