According to the Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America (SARDAA), schizophrenia can be found in approximately 1.1% of the world’s population, regardless of racial, ethnic or economic background. 1% of Greater Houston is over 70,000 people that might have this ravaging disease. These people, along with their families are lonely, confused, disenfranchised, and desperate.
The Engalla Hope Foundation (EHF) has a goal of making a difference for these families. Our goal is to help 1000 families with schizophrenia, providing them with best-in-class treatment and housing services. EHF will partner with the Mental Health Co-Op of Houston, to provide best-in-class treatment and housing services. The Mental Health Co-Op brings a “new normal” to the lives of individuals with this disease. We can no longer treat individuals with schizophrenia as discarded or helpless, and expect it to not affect us. Watch the news. We need to mobilize and make a difference.
