Fountain House is an internationally recognized nonprofit that supports the human dignity of people living with serious mental illness (SMI). It uses a pioneering collaborative model in which staff and members work together to overcome social isolation and build the community and resilience needed to thrive. The Fountain House Guesthouse pilot, a partnership with fellow grantee partner the Fortune Society, works directly with men with SMI returning from Rikers Island Jail. The goal of the program is to connect men living with SMI and involved with the criminal legal system to housing, clinical services, education, employment and community.
