Preventive Measures and The Preventive Measures Foundation (TPMF) are proud to celebrate the success of a recent community clean-up along the Jordan River in Allentown. The location, home to many homeless individuals, was specifically chosen to address the compounded struggles of mental illness and the local shortage of affordable housing.

On Saturday, June 22, the initiative witnessed collaborations with Valley Health Partners Street Medicine Team, Allentown Health Bureau, The City of Allentown’s Parks and Recycling Departments and generous backing from Mid-Atlantic Rehabilitation Services (MARS). This collective action not only cleared the riverbank but showed the community's united stand against neglecting vulnerable groups.

Tiah Jones, the event's organizer and CSW Program Manager, highlighted the significance of community engagement. "This clean-up isn’t just about beautification—it’s about recognizing and supporting our neighbors who are most in need. Community Service Workers (CSWs) play a crucial role in this by building relationships, which is essential for engaging our clients and ensuring they receive the necessary services."

CSWs play a vital role in overcoming barriers and mitigating high-risk behaviors among clients suffering from mental health disorders and drug addiction, establishing a foundation of trust that enhances service compliance and engagement. TPMF remains steadfast in its commitment to tackle health disparities and support those in need through various programs. The CSW program is particularly focused on aiding individuals with mental health challenges and those impacted by homelessness.


The Foundation urges community members to continue their support for TPMF’s CSW program through volunteering or donations, vital for advancing mental health support and advocating for sufficient affordable housing in Allentown.
