“Dave Wooledge’s support for The WARMING CENTER at MHA”

Article Link

This May 2013 piece on the Highmark Walk For A Healthy Community site, highlights fundraising efforts to help a Warming Center in Erie, PA.  The center opens during extremely cold temperatures and allows folks living on the streets to warm themselves at times when the cold could kill them.  A part of the folks living on the streets have mental health issues, which is why I’m posting this here, because by helping organizations who aid the homeless, we are helping to improve the lives of folks with mental illnesses.  I should note that not all homeless people have mental health issues, but things I’ve read over the years seem to show a sizable number of homeless folks do have a diagnosable mental illness.
