First Annual Ice Cream Social a Tremendous Success!

EYESCREAMDavid’s Harp recently held its first annual Community Ice Cream Social and Fundraising event. We welcomed friends, family, neighbors and community members who braved the wet (and windy) weather to share a scoop of ice cream with us, learn more about what we do, and to bid on our fun auction packages.

Thank you again to our event sponsors and to the local businesses who donated items and services for our silent auction.

Planning for next year’s Ice Cream Social is already underway, see you there!

We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to your help, David’s Harp has been selected as a recipient of the 2013 Advantis Grow Grant! This $10,000 grant will allow us to install a commercial oven in David’s Harp’s community kitchen. A commercial oven will help staff and volunteers more effectively, efficiently and safely: prepare meals for members, teach members cooking skills and healthy eating, and engage members in daily meal-sharing.  These simple activities have a profound effect on the lives of some of our community’s most vulnerable individuals.

Welcome to David’s Harp!

David’s Harp is a community-based program offering opportunities for independence and an improved quality of life for adults with major chronic mental illnesses. David’s Harp offers a day treatment program setting six days a week where adults are provided with creative social skill-building groups and activities. David’s Harp provides a nurturing, non-institutional setting within which adults with mental illness can connect socially as well as build upon and sustain their recovery. As such, the adults we serve are regarded not as clients or patients but members of a supportive community.

Thank you for visiting our website! We welcome you and invite you to learn more about us, our members and our impact .
