New Vitae Co-Founder Reappointed to Philadelphia Mayor’s Commission on People with Disabilities
Date:12/5/2018

Adam Devlin, co-founder and owner of New Vitae Wellness and Recovery, has been reappointed to serve on Philadelphia Mayor James F. Kenney’s Commission on People with Disabilities. The commission focuses on creating policies that support inclusion of those who identify with a cognitive or physical disability. Devlin serves as the chair of the Behavioral Health Committee to emphasize hope, recovery, and equality for the Philadelphia community.

“I am honored to serve the City of Philadelphia on this commission,” said Devlin. “I look forward to continuing our commitment to the community and support individuals across the city who experience cognitive and physical challenges.”

In the past year, the committee has successfully initiated a “call now” program for people who are homeless and have behavioral health challenges. Philadelphia libraries, churches, food banks, homeless shelters, and government agencies use the program to connect people in need with the appropriate resources.

The commission emphasizes accessibility and inclusion for individuals living with disabilities. The mayor’s office estimates that approximately 16 percent of all Philadelphians are affected by a cognitive or physical disability. The Mayor’s Commission on People with Disabilities provides a means for affected people to share concerns and work toward positive change in areas including housing, transportation, employment, and access to services.

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery serves the Philadelphia community with three Residential Treatment Facilities for Adults (RTFAs). These specialty programs were designed in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health, Community Behavioral Health, and the Beck Institute of the University of Pennsylvania. The programs are designed to help individuals utilize a holistic model of care to manage significant behavioral health symptoms and return to their families and communities.

Devlin will continue sharing his experience of more than 30 years in the field of behavioral health supports to be able to advise the mayor with respect to existing and proposed programs that provide services to those in need in the Philadelphia community.
