Newbridge Place

             






























BECKSTETT’S  2015 ANNUAL 

CHRISTMAS  OPEN HOUSE

Saturday, December 12th    -   4:00 PM   until  11:00 PM 
$10.00 Donation/person       $15.00 Donation/couple       Children Free
Greater Donations Are  Appreciated

We’d love to see you at our annual Christmas Open House benefitting Newbridge Place on Saturday, December 12th 2015.   While our emphasis has always been on getting friends together, we are also attempting to help our veterans and non-veterans with a severe mental illness or a traumatic brain injury.  We will skip our annual Beach Party fundraiser in 2016; however, we hope to provide some funds via the open house to augment the services and programs that support the superior quality of life goals we set.  (We plan to begin the Beach Party fundraiser again in 2017.)
This event is entirely indoors and is a must for children and grandchildren - so don’t leave them behind! (But PLEASE keep an eye on them - this house is anything but child proofed!)  Dress for comfort – very casual – BRING SLIPPERS, get comfy – jeans are great.  Come when you want - leave when you want.  Stop in for some Christmas spirit, refreshments, a warm fire, and to share the holiday cheer with us and others!   Feel free to bring friends, neighbors, family.

Open House 2015
                       Newbridge Place

This year’s designee is the ONLY Medina residential home for individuals with a mental illness and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries  (Veterans and non-veterans), called Newbridge Place, located in Lodi. I serve on the Board of this organization.

This organization deserves our support for a number of reasons.  Well-run group homes are extremely rare. They are only as good as the person(s) running them – like any business.  The Executive Director, Elizabeth Mikita, is one exceptional person. She is a dynamic leader with expertise in both business and mental health issues. The sacrifice and hours she puts in and her dedication to those we serve is nothing but amazing.  Our board of directors and advisory board members include CEOs, business people, donors, and a county commissioner. Newbridge Place is the only 24 hour supervised residential group home for the severely mentally ill in Medina County.  Mental Health services are dwindling in every county, and we are one of the few counties in the state of Ohio that has no levy to support services for individuals with a mental illness.  Newbridge Place is fortunate to be operated and managed by a team of professional and dedicated personnel.  They achieve much with a limited budget.  They are fiscally frugal, fiscally accountable, and fiscally transparent.  They continue to be deserving of our support. So, I hope you will join me in supporting Newbridge Place once again. 

A little bit about Newbridge Place  We actually have 3 levels of housing: 24-hour supervision within the group home; apartments within the facility (lower level) for assistance as needed; and, independent living (a condo behind the facility) for individuals who have regained independent status (but who may experience setbacks and need occasional assistance The services are beyond any I’ve ever seen in any facility of this type in or out of county.  So is the food – mostly organic.  Health is considered holistically here. 

 

Newbridge Place is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization established to provide individualized, supportive care in a safe, clean and friendly atmosphere for persons suffering from mental illness, including PTSD for our military veterans.   Our goal is to improve the quality of our residents' lives by providing services that are designed to improve their mental, physical, personal, and social skills.  Newbridge Place also involves its residents in caring for their community (volunteering, working) and is proactive in providing community educational programs.

Newbridge Place is seeking grants and donations to achieve its short and long term goals. On the short term, we are raising funds to strengthen the foundations of Newbridge Place, to build a fund to help individuals who lack financial support to enter the home, and to create a work program for the residents.  Long term, Newbridge Place would like to create additional supportive housing for the population we serve, especially homeless veterans and low income people of Medina County with a mental illness.

 

Please visit newbridgeplace.org for more information, or call me at your convenience.

 

                           Your support is greatly appreciated.

Our 2015 Winter Beach Party was a great success!  THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and all who attended and supported Newbridge Place.
