About Arch Street Center
Arch Street Center’s continuing mission is to support the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness by providing social, moral and material support, recreational and hygiene facilities and fresh, nutritious meals in a safe, nurturing environment. We currently have around 300 members and serve approximately 45 individuals daily, or nearly 16,500 meals annually. Although there are other places in the city to find a meal there is only one place to find integrated services all year long.
Arch Street Center operates as a membership-based, voluntary drop-in program. We have no mandatory requirements for attendance and program participation but instead gently encourage members to participate to the extent they feel most comfortable. As new members forge connections with other members and staff they gradually expand their participation until Arch Street Center becomes a positive and empowering part of their daily routine.
Peer support is at the core of mental health recovery principals. Arch Street Center provides a safe, judgment-free environment where members can feel safe expressing themselves, make and foster friendships and discuss their daily challenges, hopes and dreams. The members themselves become their own social support network, often filling a painful void left by family connections previously lost. Members at risk for social withdrawal, discrimination, employment limitations, homelessness and financial instability can find solace, encouragement, friendship, moral and material support through the connections they make at Arch Street Center.
About Music For Everyone
Music For Everyone is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to raising the awareness and resources to strengthen the role that music plays in our schools and communities.Since 2006, MFE has awarded well over $1.0 million in grants, scholarships and direct program support to schools and community arts groups in Lancaster County.
Here’s why we exist:
Music is important to our community.
Research shows that music education helps create strong schools and vibrant communities.
Music programs are in financial trouble.
Despite overwhelming evidence of their value, funding for music programs is being slashed.
Music for Everyone is doing something to help.
Our mission is to cultivate the power of music for education and community building.
Our strategy employs three steps:
1. Consult with education and community leaders to identify and assess needs of school and community based music programs,
2. Raise community awareness of those needs and resources to address them,
3. Strategically invest those resources to effectively and efficiently address those needs.
