Jeremy Goldstein, a partner of the law firm Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, has joined together with Jim Finkel and Omar Khan to host wine dinners. These dinners and the donations received at them are in support of the Fountain House.
The Fountain House is an organization that helps men and women with mental illnesses. The funds raised by Goldstein will ensure that the Fountain House can continue to serve people with mental illnesses in the future.
Jeremy Goldstein, who sits as a chairman of the Mergers and Acquisition Sub-committee of the American Bar Association Business Section, has long supported Fountain House. Goldstein received his B.A. from Cornell University. This degree was followed by an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and a J.D. from the New York University.
Jeremy Goldstein sits on the board of directors of Fountain House. The organization prides itself on helping people with mental illnesses become productive members of society. Fountain House achieves this by running community based mental health programs, providing avocation for people with mental health issues, and by researching and creating programs developed to better the lives of those with debilitating mental illnesses.
By employing community involvement, Fountain House members are able to increase their confidence, develop friendships, learn new skills, and achieve higher levels of education. Fountain House provides seven different areas of employment, such as culinary, education, and horticulture.
Thanks in part to Jeremy Goldstein, the Fountain House Model has spread around the globe, and currently, 300 locations serve the mentally ill.
