New Hope Happenings – NAMIWalks, Open House, More Facility Upgrades
Rock Hill, S.C., October 13, 2023 – New Hope Treatment Centers was in full force this past week, hosting open houses, serving as a presenting sponsor and unveiling a new space in the facility.
At New Hope, we believe it is our mission to be more than just a treatment provider. As we’ve done in the past, we partnered with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health) for their 10th annual NAMIWalks on Saturday, October 7. We stepped up even more as this year’s presenting sponsor. More than 80 New Hope staff were in attendance, along with friends, family and even dogs. For more photos from the event.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better morning, I love this New Hope team”, said Chief Operating Officer, Matt Simon MA LMFT. “A few years ago, there were just a handful of New Hope team members who came out to NAMI’s annual walk. This year we were the presenting sponsor and had over 80 team members represented, close to 100 including family. The kids New Hope serves are part of the community. We are part of the community. The only way to a better mental health system is together.”
On Monday, October 9, we hosted an open house for our new Dallas, NC facility. The six-bed home was on display for members of Mecklenburg County, Alliance and plenty of New Hope team members. It was a great event to kickstart an expansion of our services. For more photos from the open house.
Our facility in Rock Hill had a facelift last week with new wood flooring. Additional upgrades were already in the works, as a new gaming room was completed earlier this week.
“As much as I long for the days of ping pong, we providers have to evolve with the times, and that’s especially important when working with teens,” said Simon. “This is why we recently transformed our old game room. We will still use time in this space to work on patience, self-control, and even teamwork. Every experience, every space, every moment in our program should provide an opportunity for growth, development and healing for our kids.”
