As we resume the summer fundraising, at a scaled back version, our golf tournament will be held at Shadow Lake courses on July 24th with box lunches and dinners for
golfers. Unfortunately, the silent auction and dinner will not take place in order to conform to statemandated protocol for community gatherings. It is our sincere hope that your generosity will outshine
the darkness cast by this pandemic and that the lost revenue from the cancellation of the dinner and
silent auction will be lessened.
The MEG’s Gift Board has selected East House to be the primary beneficiary of funds raised in 2021. Incorporated in 1966 as a non-profit agency, it began as a safe and supportive transitional residence for persons leaving psychiatric hospitals who were not yet ready to live on their own. It was the first "halfway" house for persons in recovery from mental illness in New York State. From this one house on Dartmouth Street in Rochester with three employees, East House has grown into a comprehensive rehabilitation agency with 210 employees that provides several levels of supervised and independent housing options along with a comprehensive array of programs and services for over 1500 persons annually in the Greater Rochester area who are recovering from persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.
