We recognize that the mind and body work together and must be treated together to achieve the best health outcomes,” says Deputy CEO Tim Lentz, who will transition to CEO in August as John Waters retires after 17 years of service.

CVH’s commitment to the community includes outpatient therapy, psychiatric treatment, peer support services, mobile crisis management, residential services, psychosocial rehabilitation, independent living, skills training, jail services, social services, and intensive team-based specialized case management and treatment. 

The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serves the general public and those with developmental and intellectual disabilities, those who are uninsured and underinsured, those who are homeless, those without documentation, and those who are incarcerated or recently incarcerated. 

CVH serves over 6,000 individuals annually.
