“LETTER” FROM LEADERSHIP
“At the forefront of our thinking is always a focus on those individuals who are most in need. I think it helps us understand why we’re really here and how we’re different, how we’re unique, and how we’re committed to carrying on the charism and the legacy of our sponsors.”
—Mark A. Frey, President & CEO, AMITA Health and Alexian Brothers Health System

SERVING THE VULNERABLE
SUPPORTING QUALITY CLINICAL CARE
The Alexian Brothers Foundation will provide philanthropic support to mission-critical Alexian Brothers ministries of AMITA Health. It will fund services for individuals and families marginalized by poverty, homelessness and illness. It will enhance clinical care. It will focus on transforming the community’s health through the One Life at a Time vision for behavioral healthcare.
One Life at a Time
AMITA Health Behavioral Medicine’s vision is to give every person access to the behavioral healthcare he or she needs in the right time and place. A residential facility will provide long-term, live-in care. A full-time advocate will strengthen partnerships and funding. Expanding specialty care while sustaining supportive housing and community-based services will ensure everyone can access optimal treatment. Intervening earlier will permanently alter the course of individuals’ and families’ lives.
