Envision Unlimited and Neumann Family Services serve populations with intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental illness, or a dual diagnosis. Both organizations originally focused on children and expanded to providing services to adults. The nonprofits have been working side-by-side side for years, discussing the state of the health services industry and sharing concerns about the industry’s transition to a managed care system. The combined nonprofit provides the ability to scale, complementary programs and increased fundraising opportunities. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration provided a grant to fund a portion of the one-time costs for the merger.
