Service Above Self

Mary Kate Maco of the Presence Health Holy Family Foundation

Posted by Roberta Johnson on May 04, 2018
Mary Kate is the new Regional Executive Director of the Presence/Amita Holy Family Foundation. While Presence Health has always had a robust foundation funding activities across the country, this is the first time that Holy Family will have its own  foundation targeted to Des Plaines community health projects. The first project on Mary's to do list is the completion and promotion of the Keys to Recovery Alcohol and Drug Rehab Center, a $2 million dollar project.
 
The "Keys" project has a very special service at its heart; the Law Enforcement Assistance Program (LEAP).  Police officers and other first responders have a truly difficult set of circumstances that put them at risk - exposure to violence, stress, narcotics, and an entrenched culture that makes it very hard to ask for help of any kind. The new LEAP program has a strong connection with the Des Plaines Police Department to start, and will serve LEOs from around Chicagoland. 
 
You can call them 847.298.9355 day or night. This is needed and exciting and we're proud to have it located in Des Plaines!
