New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Fall Festival and Fun

October 19, 2016

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery enjoyed celebrating the arrival of cooler weather and the tricks and treats of Halloween this year!

On October 19th, many staff and residents from all sites gathered at Mount Trexler Manor for our 2016 Fall Festival. There were hayrides to the "pumpkin patch," s'mores, a sing-a-long, and a pumpkin decorating contest for prizes. Matt Sabella was awarded the Resident Choice 2016 for the Mount Trexler Manor Young Adult Unit, and Dave Butz for Mount Trexler Manor.

Additionally, Quakertown House and the Pathways program celebrated Halloween with an additional party closer to the holiday.  Many residents and staff participated in the costume party and shared refreshments while door prizes were awarded to lucky winners.  Residents enjoyed holiday surprises, cheering for their favorite costumes, and spending time together.  Take a look at our fun photos below!

"As a staff member, I have learned a lot about mental health and I have witnessed many residents transform from a place of fear and paranoia to becoming outgoing, secure, content and able to hold a job in the community and much more.”
