On May 22, 2018, Jeremy Goldstein, along with Jim Finkel and Omar Khan, hosted a splendid dinner with vintage wine to help support Fountain House. The wine was some of the best vintages of Chateau Latour wine. Fountain House is an organization that helps people overcome mental illness.
Mental illness can stifle one’s life. It can prevent you from keeping a job, finishing your education, being present in relationships, having monetary insight, and taking care of oneself. Fountain House helps with all these life skills that might be daunting for someone with a mental illness. Fountain House was founded in 1944 by six people who were patients at the Rockland State Hospital in Orangeburg, New York. In 1948, the small group, as well as supporters, bought a building in New York City. They named it Fountain House because the garden had a fountain. Fountain House’s mission is to help provide opportunities for people with mental illness to live, work, and learn, while gaining mutual support within their community.
Jeremy Goldstein, who is a member on the board of directors at Fountain House, has been able to accomplish this mission. He has helped create initiatives to help people with mental illness become active, contributing members of their community. The proceeds from this wine dinner will help create programs for mental health in New York City, create programs based on research and knowledge on how to overcome mental illness, and create advocacy for people who live with mental illness. Programs like these have raised the standard of living for people who suffer from mental illness.
Jeremy Goldstein has immense pride in the accomplishments of Fountain House. He has been on the Board of Directors since 2010. Jeremy Goldstein holds a J.D. degree from New York University School of Law, an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and a B.A. cum laude with distinction from Cornell University. He runs his own law firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates LLC. His forte is corporate law.
