For years, people in New York City suffering from mental illness have been able to turn to Fountain House for help. Fountain House is an organization that assists people with mental illness learn to function in society. The organization was started by a group of people with mental illness in 1944 as a way to help each other. The group quickly expanded and in 1948 they bought a house to act as a base of operations. In front of the house stood a large fountain, which the group came to see as a symbol of the work they were doing. This fountain is where the group derives its name.
Fountain House’s current model is the same one they used in 1944. Back then, the group was known as “We are not alone.” Fountain House takes in clients and helps them achieve their goals of employment and education. The group also helps clients form friendships and relationships through community service. Fountain House members can use their skills like cooking, farming, and communications to better the community and themselves. Fountain House also aims to help homeless people with mental illness find housing and safe shelters. By encouraging clients to actively engage in the community, Fountain House is able to not only better its clients, but they are also able to improve New York City.
Fountain House recently benefited from a charity event hosted by attorney Jeremy Goldstein. Mr. Goldstein put on a lavish gala on the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel in New York City. Tickets for the event sold for a donation of $5000. Guests were treated to an amazing five-star meal and a variety of vintage and rare wines.
Mr. Goldstein has been a lawyer in New York for many years. He earned his law degree from the law school at the University of New York. After his education, he took a job at a local corporate law firm but left to start his own firm when he realized he could work with both big corporations and individuals.
Mr. Goldstein’s firm, Jeremy Goldstein & Associates, LLC. has assisted mergers and acquisitions for big corporations like Chevron/Texaco and J.P. Morgan Chase & Company/Bank One Corporation. Mr. Goldstein’s success has landed him a lot of attention. He has been named one of the top 500 corporate compensation lawyers in America. He has also been invited to serve on the boards of several different organizations.
