Back to School Stress Eased for 150 Families

Have you ever wondered how disadvantaged students afford the school supplies they need? According to a new survey from Deloitte that analyzes back-to-school buying trends, parents will spend an estimated $510 per household on school supplies this year.

Thanks to the generosity of BNI Mainline I- Voices initiative, students in our PEACE program and parents in our Housing programs received a little assistance to begin the school year. 150 backpacks, loaded with school supplies were donated and distributed. At Horizon House we understand that support to the men and women we serve is more than a mere treatment of a diagnosis. Our goal is for the whole person to thrive. This act of kindness from our BNI Mainline I community partners truly alleviated stress and anxiety for the recipients.

Horizon House… A Work in Progress

The development of our new headquarters at 59th and Market Street is well on its way. Rather than just inviting you to the unveiling in 2020, come, take a peek with us to witness the progress thus far. New Market West will be much more than an office as it will bring child care, retail shops, and low-income housing that will benefit both the local community, our participants, and staff.

Horizon House Has a New Medical Director

Dr. Lawrence (Larry) Real has returned as Medical Director at Horizon House and as Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Community Psychiatry Fellowship program.

Having accepted the position as the Chief Medical Officer for the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health & Intellectual disAbility Services in 2015, we are quite pleased that he has returned; bringing new knowledge and energy to Horizon House.

Dr. Real was the first psychiatrist appointed to the Horizon House Board of Directors in 2009 and joined the agency in July 2010 as the Medical Director.

Horizon House IS Smoke-Free

It’s official! Horizon House became a smoke-free environment as of July 1, 2018. With the support from top management, advanced planning, and communications, allowing agency-wide feedback, we’ve made it. We recognize that choosing to become a smoke-free environment may not be easy for some, but in the long run, we know that it is the right decision for everyone. We will continue to help those that are still on the fence by offering smoking cessation classes, education materials, and other resources to help everyone with this transition.
We are excited to choose a New Normal for Horizon House- breathing cleaner air.
