Wine Dinner Party
In the past, Jeremy has hosted dinner parties to support the activities of the Fountain House. Since he loves wine very much, he invites like-minded guests to share exquisite wines as they support a worthy cause. On May 21, Jeremy Goldstein will be hosting a wine dinner party where each guest will pay for an entry ticket worth $5,000. The attendees of this event will enjoy free wine and food.
Through such events, Jeremy Goldstein has raised thousands of dollars on behalf of the Fountain House. The funds collected from these events have been used to empower and the mentally ill people in New York and its environs.
Jeremy Goldstein believes that Fountain House is supporting out an important initiative that helps a marginalized a section of the community. In very rare occasions are people living with mental illnesses considered for participation in community projects. This has changed through the input of the Fountain House since it has proved that the mentally ill people can also live a healthy and constructive life. All that they deserve is an opportunity to play a role in community development.
The Work of Fountain House
The Fountain House has been around since 1944 when a group of six people with mental illnesses gathered together in a hospital and decided to create a support group for the mentally ill community. The main goal of this organization was to fight the stigma associated with mental illnesses. Over the years, the group received support from well-wishers and grew the group into a formidable charity organization that fights for the welfare of the mentally ill people.
Fountain House is interested in the empowerment of these people. To accomplish this mission, the organization has focused on providing them with decent housing, education opportunities, and employment.
So far, this organization has contributed 42 percent of all employment opportunities available to people with mental illnesses.
