Friendship House Announces Upvalley Location

May 22, 2019

MAYFIELDFriendship House in new home After accepting 1,500 clients from the departing behavioral and mental health provider Merakey, Friendship House is getting comfortable in its new Mayfield home. Friendship House will hold an open house event at 4 p.m. today at its new location in the NEET Center, 1300 Old Plank Road. Friendship House offers therapy, home health and case management among other services. Merakey’s departure from the Northeast Pennsylvania market last year would have left the children, teens and adults with disabilities it served without care. Friendship House hired more than 50 former Merakey employees and transitioned clients with no service disruptions, officials said in a news release. The NEET Center location opened in November. — JON O’CONNELL
