The Mental Health Association of Southeast PA is the founding partner of StreetChange.
MHASP is a leader in delivering services by and for people in recovery with a behavioral health diagnosis, based on the principle that self-help and mutual support are empowering and that the best helpers for those in need are often those who have experienced similar challenges. Their recovery based practices and programs offer a model of service delivery that emphasizes peer/family support demonstrating that recovery from mental illness and/or substance use addictions is possible. These services are designed to empower people with behavioral health diagnosis and their families so that they may lead self-fulfilling lives.
MHASP serves over 4,000 people annually in the five county region of Southeast Pennsylvania, providing peer-to-peer services to adults with a behavioral health diagnosis, targeted case management services to the same population and family support and advocacy on behalf of families whose children have been diagnosed with a behavioral health condition.
MHASP also operates three homeless outreach teams, two of whom are based in Philadelphia, the other in Delaware County.
The Barra Foundation invests in innovation to inspire change that strengthens communities in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Change is uncomfortable. Resources are scarce. The world is changing rapidly. Innovation can be risky. But organizations that go on autopilot can fall into stale, unimaginative thinking. They need to push beyond the status quo to be better, stronger and more effective. Yet there are few resources available to encourage individuals and organizations to break through and find new ways of doing things.
Barra invests in innovation that seeks to drive positive change to address the needs of low-income populations in the region and promote a continued vibrant cultural community. Innovation is in their DNA—and has been since 1963. They are all about ingenuity. And they know from experience that there are many smart, creative thinkers in our region tackling problems and seizing opportunities in new and different ways.
