HAWTHORNE, N.Y. – The Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services formally renamed its treatment facility in Hawthorne on Wednesday, Nov. 11, and honored the man who has dedicated much of his life to the organization.
Linden Hill, a 64-bed residence for adolescents with severe psychiatric conditions, is now called The Mann Center, after Anthony E. Mann and his wife Sally.
The Manns live in Greenwich, Conn., with their four children: Alexandra, Isabelle, Strauss, and Georgia.
Mann has been with the Jewish Board for more than 25 years. A longtime trustee, former board president, and its current chairman, he started as a volunteer for a youth program.
He also founded The Hudson Valley Bike Ride event, which has so far raised more than $5 million to support human services agencies.The Mann Center, located on Linda Avenue, provides residents with intensive therapy, individual, family and group psychotherapy, special education, and vocational training. The average stay lasts between nine and 11 months.
The nonprofit organization serves more than 43,000 people of all ages across New York City's five boroughs and in Westchester County.
