On behalf of AMHDD, INC. Board of Trustees, I wish to convey our pleasure and THANK YOU to each and everyone who is visiting our website. I am inspired by you as friends and associates alike who have strong spirits and an open heart to contribute to our mission, goals and objectives. All of today’s guests --- My sincere gratitude goes out to all of our Board of Trustees members and to our executive volunteer support associates who have worked tirelessly towards making this agency a success.
AMHDD, INC was founded and incorporated in 2000 as a 501C3 non-profit social services/ mental health agency, designed to provide opportunities to people with mental health needs in a residential setting, intensive in-home /an outpatient setting and a day program setting. Our agency exists today and will continue to exist for a long time to come and is in part due to your continuing support. While there are growing pains, it is our hope that our work will continue to help and define and advance the field of mental health.
The growth in this vital profession corresponds with the need of the urban community to know about us and to understand our interdependence. Our quality services require dedication, rigor and enthusiasm to make our work more potent and a constructive force. Your support reflects an understanding that nurtures our communities that is on the path to a brighter future for the people who can benefit from our comprehensive health services.
Our agency offers new perspectives on preexisting and emerging themes that is a significant contribution in the field. Operationally, we exist in Essex County, Hudson, Bergen, Union, Passaic, Sussex, Middlesex, Mercer and Morris. These counties have helped us to enhance our position through strategic partnerships with the New Jersey State Division of Child Behavioral Health Services in which we are a treatment / prevention provider agency.
We endeavor to change attitudes and stereotypes with people who have needs through raising funds to support our goals. By opening up your hearts and minds and then to determine how you can best contribute to the outcomes of the support efforts, we ask that donations be made no matter how small or large, and this we truly welcome, and appreciate. Our greatest challenge is to meet the needs of a diverse population and in understanding the issues of race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual identity, social class and gender it is essential for us to be effective.
Special thanks goes to recognizing our current and past board of trustees members for their community involvement and contributions outside of their general professional work activities. They have given freely and generously of their time and skills to a wide variety of task functions, duties and responsibilities to the organization. With this, I sincerely thank them.
Additionally, I want to thank all of my executive management staff and all clinicians for their invaluable contributions to the service of the agency.
