This July 14, 2013 article on the Lancaster Online website talks about Author Wanda E. Brunstetter’s efforts to help real Amish people by making a quilt made from squares donated by readers and auctioning it off.  The proceeds from the quilt will go to help Oaklawn, near Goshen, Indiana.  The facility offers both short and long-term adult mental health services to Amish people across the country.  They also have a facility for treating youths.  The facility is unique in that it is centered around showing respect for the Amish way of life while at the same time offering mental health care.
