Jeremy Goldstein has hosted two wine dinners with the help of Jim Finkel and Omar Khan which raised 56,000 dollars for a professional self-help program called Fountain House. Fountain House is a non profit dedicated to supporting men and women with mental illness.
Recognizing that mental illness may prevent people from keeping jobs, getting their education, keeping relationships, maintaining their finances, and taking care of themselves, Fountain House provides people with mental illnesses who are its members with opportunities to live, work and learn while also supporting their community with their talents.
Jeremy Goldstein is a member of Fountain House’s Board of Directors and helps lead the non profit. Fountain House accomplishes its goals in many ways. One way is through communal mental health programs that operate all around New York City. Another way is by developing innovating programs that are based on reseach and shared knowledge about recovery from people’s mental illnesses.
They also collaborate with local and global community members in order to inspire and teach the Fountain House model so they can spread it to international organizations and they advocate their cause of helping people who are living with serious mental illness in general to improve perceptions and practices.
