This week marks Transgender Awareness Week, an opportunity to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and address the issues the community faces. We support the trans community and stand against the prejudice, discrimination, and violence that transgender people continue to face. #TransWeek

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay, which is observed to help raise awareness about mental health concerns. Mental illness is one of the leading causes of homelessness among single adults in the United States. In a fast-paced city like New York, it’s especially hard for individuals who struggle with mental health concerns to carry out everyday tasks, maintain healthy relationships, and hold a stable job — particularly without support. At Project Renewal, we help our clients manage their mental health through diagnosis and treatment.
We are so proud of Jesus, a client of our Recover Center, who was honored yesterday at the Lifesaver Awards Ceremony, held by the NYC Department of Health. Jesus was trained to administer naloxone at The Recovery Center. When he noticed his neighbor passed out in the street, he quickly sprang into action and used his training to save his neighbor’s life. Congratulations, Jesus!
