Patients & Purpose Beautifies the Bronx

On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, several folks from our agency took a trip to the Bronx to create a mural for Fox Point, a supportive housing complex. Working with Services for the Underserved, employees from Patients & Purpose designed and created an interactive mural for the residents at Fox Point.

The Patients & Purpose team and the Fox Point team hard at work placing the finishing touches on the murals.

Fox Point is a supportive housing complex that provides 48 units of affordable housing for formerly homeless and low-income families and individuals. Supportive housing assists people transitioning from homelessness and helps enable them to live as independently as possible.

At Patients & Purpose, we encourage our employees to take time off to volunteer. A special thanks to the employees who participated: Troy Anderson, Jamie Feld, Shanti Garcia, David Gonzalez, Josh Ilutiza, Julian Soto, and Merone Tesfaye.
