Personal Stories and Professional Insights on Navigating Chronic Pain

“Living with chronic pain is a physically exhausting experience that extends far beyond physical discomfort. I know this both from my own lived experience with peripheral neuropathy and major nerve damage and as the CEO of People USA, a peer-led non-profit that serves individuals with behavioral health challenges, many of whom struggle with chronic pain as well.”

  • Happy Juneteenth! 💚 🖤 ❤️ 💛

Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States marking the emancipation of enslaved African Americans on June 19, 1865. Major General Gordon Granger declared freedom for slaves in Texas, and now Juneteenth is celebrated nationwide to honor African-American culture.

  • 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. 💙 

Thanks to the Field Hall Foundation's generosity in 2021, we have already been able to make great strides towards our goal of better serving this vulnerable demographic. This year, we will be able to go even further in ensuring that more seniors have safe access to our services and are supported by our programs. 

A huge thank you to the Field Hall Foundation Board of Directors and to Patti Horvath, Program Officer. Patti is pictured here with Kristen Vaphides, Development Manager, and Maria Kavouras, Assistant Executive Director of Operations, outside of the Putnam County Rose House respite where much of the grant's funds will be directed. We are so grateful!
