NHS Partners in Caring Spruce Up Two Philadelphia Homes
On a beautiful and sunny day, more than 50 NHS administrative staff members, employees from Philadelphia Insurance Companies and The Graham Company, and residents and staff members from two of our homes in the Germantown section of Philadelphia volunteered to participate in Partners in Caring. Volunteers spent the day on Thursday, September 15 cleaning up the outdoor areas surrounding the homes, including mulching, weeding, painting, digging, planting, and other yardwork. The NHS Iris House is a Long Term Structured Residence (LTSR) that houses men and women, and the Douglass House is a Community Residential Rehab (CRR) for men with behavioral health challenges.
Launched in 2015, NHS Partners in Caring provides an opportunity for administrative staff that are not generally active in the daily service operations to visit NHS sites and to make a difference that supports all that the organization does. In partnership with corporate agencies, including Philadelphia Insurance Companies and the Graham Company, NHS participates in a variety of initiatives at its community locations throughout the year. Residents and staff at Thursday’s event were extremely appreciative of the support received from NHS and our corporate partners. Great job to all volunteers!
