SEPTEMBER 27, 2017
Developer Phil M. Tartsinis and the law firm of Shipman & Goodwin, LLP., are the first two donors to support CHR at the new “Be a Hero” level for 2018. The announcement was made during CHR’s 10th Annual Golf and Tennis Outing on Sept. 25.

CHR, the state’s most comprehensive non-profit behavioral healthcare agency, is looking for more heroes to follow Tartsinis and Shipman & Goodwin.

“They are the pacesetters and we are looking for more donors to follow their lead,” said CHR’s President and CEO, Heather Gates. “We are so appreciative of generous, loyal donors like Phil and Shipman & Goodwin. Now more than ever, as state funding to our services continues to shrink, we need private donations to continue bringing hope and healing to thousands of children, families and individuals. We need more heroes!”
