New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Celebrates Their 35th AnniversarySeptember 24, 2018
It was 1983. A woman who had emigrated to America years before and who had graduated with a Master’s Degree in Social Work saw a need for residential services for Veterans. Anne Mills, MSW, identified the benefits of offering residential supports for Veterans who found themselves without a home after their service. Ms. Mills later opened state-licensed homes in lower and central Bucks County, Pennsylvania, providing support for Veterans and other individuals diagnosed with a variety of behavioral health challenges. Her efforts flourished and ultimately became the residential behavioral health services currently offered by New Vitae Wellness and Recovery.
As we celebrate New Vitae’s 35th Anniversary year, our leadership sought to mark the occasion by giving back to employees. On September 17th and September 20th, staff members were treated to lunch and dessert by Chewy’s Food Truck and Sweet Pea Ice Cream. Employees enjoyed a special delivery as both food trucks rolled in to serve lunch. Staff members had the opportunity to socialize and enjoy the afternoon, catching up with friends from across the organization.
New Vitae Wellness and Recovery would not be the fantastic community it is today without our amazing residents and staff. We are proud to have been able to offer the opportunity to commemorate our “jade” anniversary! We also wish to draw attention to the hope and foresight displayed by Anne Mills. Her story highlights the impact that one person can have on so many. Thank you to all of our community and friends for helping us to live our mission: serving communities by promoting hope, health, and wellness.
"I love New Vitae. My team has been really supportive as I learned to manage my life and be successful in college and employment. I'm getting ready to move on from the program into my own apartment, and feel that New Vitae has helped me be ready for this next step."- Michelle P. (former resident)
