People USA received the Field Hall Foundation grant!

We are thrilled to announce that People USA received a $30,000 grant from the Field Hall Foundation to support our work with participants ages 60 and up, a population that is extremely underserved when it comes to mental health.

“Regular interactions with trauma can take a toll on support professionals. Self-care is important for healing practitioners to maintain day-to-day health.” 🫶 People USA’s Wellness Committee is an extension of the organization’s investment in and commitment to overall staff wellness. The committee operates on the shared values of respect, fairness, confidentiality, community, leadership, and growth. The committee recently launched their "8 Dimensions of Wellness Program," focusing each month on a different element of holistic wellness while promoting team bonding. We are proud to be practicing what we preach with our internal staff in order to "help the helpers" at our organization!
