In 2007, the Foundation provided The Staten Island Mental Health Society capital support for its efforts to open the first Green Building on Staten Island and the only LEED Certified Platinum Building.

Renovations to an existing commercial building at 444 St. Marks Place into an environmentally-friendly Green Building allowed SIMHS to consolidate programs offered at 2 nearby leased sites. Some of the children’s programs offered at the new location include child abuse prevention, substance abuse prevention and treatment, and a mental health clinic. The building was designed to reduce energy costs and to reduce the consumption of electricity and heating and cooling resources.
