Howard Center’s Spring Appeal

Welcome to Howard Center. We have been providing progressive, compassionate, high-quality care and supports to those in need for over 150 years. Today, we offer an array of exemplary mental health, substance use, and developmental services across the lifespan. As our friends and neighbors experience the lasting effects of the pandemic, the current need for services exceeds our capacity, and so we turn to you to help us support our community. If you are able, please consider donating today.

Purple Legacy Society: Continuing the legacy of John Purple Howard and his sister Louisa Howard

In 1882, John Purple Howard made what must have seemed to be a simple donation at the time. When his sister Louisa Howard asked him to support the Ladies Aid Society, he couldn’t have known that his $200 contribution would become one of the key building blocks of today’s Howard Center.
