OUR IMPACT

The Mr. Davids Foundation continues to seek out community partners to provide awareness of critical community needs and financial support to organizations, initiatives and individuals that help improve our communities and empower the people within them.

In 2016, the Foundation formalized its partnership with the Alexian Brothers Foundation, an organization that actively pursues high-impact philanthropic solutions to the most pressing healthcare needs with a special focus on healing the most vulnerable.

PRIMARY COMMUNITY PARTNER:

Amita Health Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital

The dire need for expanding these services in the community is astounding. Each day, approximately 450 individuals from the community arrive at the Hoffman Estates facility seeking care and treatment, many of whom are minors and students referred by local schools. Imagine how differently the community would look without having access to a place of care for those struggling with mental health issues. At a time when Federal and State funding is decreasing for mental health services, it is imperative for the hospital to continue to maintain its facility and grow to better serve the communities where we live, work, and play.
