On May 13, 2016, Penn Foundation hosted its 11th annual Legislative Luncheon. This event provides an opportunity for local legislators to visit Penn Foundation’s campus and learn more about the agency’s programs and services and to share their legislative priorities.


Penn Foundation President and CEO Wayne Mugrauer provided an overview of Penn Foundation’s innovative endeavors over the past year and shared the agency’s programmatic priorities for 2016-2017, highlighting the strides that Penn Foundation has made to position itself to become a fully-integrated, holistically-oriented healthcare system.


Amy Maurizio, MS, MBA, Director of Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Services, and Gordon Hornig, MSW, LSW, Coordinator of Mobile Engagement Services, spoke about trends in addiction care and described Penn Foundation’s treatment and prevention programs, including a prevention grant from the Bucks County Drug and Alcohol Commission. Client Blase Cinque shared his story of recovery from drug addiction, a journey that began eight months ago in Penn Foundation’s detox program and has now led to weekly outpatient counseling, Twelve Step meetings, and employment with a local company.


In a time when mental health and substance abuse are being discussed on a national level, Penn Foundation is grateful for the opportunity to dialogue with area legislators about its programs and the issues facing community behavioral healthcare providers. Special thanks to those legislators who attended the luncheon – Bucks County Commissioners Diane Ellis-Marseglia and Robert Loughery and State Representatives Marcy Toepel, Robert Godshall, and Craig Staats.
