Persons served host ‘Appreciation Day’ for community partners

Cary, NC – October 9, 2012 – The support of community partners at FHR (Fellowship Health Resources) in North Carolina empowers individuals to take an active role in their recovery and in their communities. At this year’s Appreciation Day at the Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) Program in Cary, persons served gave thanks to volunteers who have made an impact on those at FHR.

The origami flower arrangements were made as part of Studio 35.

“This is a client-initiated event that was started a few years ago by Robert B., who expressed an interest in giving back to the individuals in the community who have contributed to the success of the PSR Program,” says Case Manager Ray Cowan.

Persons served made origami flower arrangements, centerpieces, and doilies for the event hosted at the Cary Satellite Program. Shere R., a member of the PSR Program, read a poem that she wrote to recognize the important roles that others can play in an individual’s life.

FHR persons served and staff highlighted Bryan Yarborough of the Green Chair Project in Raleigh, Ben Reckendorf from the Carolina Worm Castings, Bob Adams of the Cary Photographic Artists, and Regan Brown from the Cooperative Extension Masters Gardening Program at North Carolina State University.
