There are many positive changes happening at JEVS Tikvah Residence, which offers affordable housing for adults with mental health needs. We are pleased to announce that the program has been awarded $24,536 in funding from an anonymous donor. This award will be used for enhanced staffing at Tikvah Residence, allowing JEVS to provide additional clinical services and to expand the non-clinical services offered with the aim of supporting residents in their pursuit of health and overall wellness.
In addition, this funding will allow us to more robustly implement our evidence-based Happy Healthy Life (HHL) curriculum, including offering HHL classes to Tikvah residents as well as to additional community members.
On Saturday, May 20, 2017, JEVS Human Services volunteers and staff gathered together with Tikvah residents at our first Fixer-Upper Event to help spruce up the Tikvah Residence and grounds in Drexel Hill, Pa. A beautiful mural was designed and painted in the community room, flower beds were freshened up with new flowers and mulch, interior walls were painted, and even the exterior signage was given a new coat of paint. JEVS also collected donations from volunteers to enhance the decor and function of the common room, such as paintings, rugs and a flat screen TV. Thank you to all of the volunteers who continue to help us Make Hope Happen in our community!
Want to help with a donation? Tikvah Residence is still in need of the following:
- An exercise bike
- A doctor’s scale
If you or someone you know has one of these items and wants to donate it, please contact Ranee at 215-854-1844.
