Partners in Caring at Merakey’s First Outpatient Site in Philadelphia
Merakey’s Behavioral Health Services, located at 27 E. Mt. Airy Avenue, welcomed nearly 100 employees, corporate vendors and individuals served to the 2019 Partners in Caring event on Friday, September 27. Partners in Caring is an opportunity for Merakey employees, who work in corporate and administrative positions, to support our mission by participating in an all-day, on-site service and clean-up effort.
Volunteers braved the heat to participate in various improvement projects, including painting, landscaping, and general clean-up around the building. Councilwoman Cindy Bass and Donna Clement Jackson, Director of Constituent Services for Councilmember Derek Green attended and volunteered their time and painting skills to the event. Philadelphia Insurance Companies, The Graham Company, Ann Green's Weeding Friend-Z & Gardening Landscaping, and Sherwin Williams showed their support of the Merakey mission by volunteering their time, skills, and resources to ensure a successful day was experienced by everyone in attendance.
The Mt. Airy site was the very first location for the behavioral health organization, providing Outpatient services as well as information and resources, referrals, and community outreach to the Philadelphia area. Today, the same location continues to provide behavioral health and addiction services to children, adults and families in the community.
Merakey thanks all the volunteers for making this year’s Partners in Caring a huge success. The staff who work at the site and individuals who receive services there are grateful to everyone for helping to spruce up the building and surrounding landscape.
