In Memoriam: Henry van Ameringen
Clubhouse International Board members, staff, and many of our Clubhouse colleagues around the world, are greatly saddened by the recent passing of Henry van Ameringen. Henry was an inspirational friend of Clubhouse International, whose generosity as a funder and supporter of the global Clubhouse community is unmatched in philanthropy. Through the years, as a long time Board member of Fountain House and the van Ameringen Foundation, Henry supported our vision of helping to ensure that Clubhouse communities and opportunities are available to people living with mental illness everywhere. His keen interest in our plans and work both encouraged and challenged us to continuously improve.
In addition to his generous support of the international Clubhouse community, Henry was also a benefactor to many other organizations. He was a leader in working for LBGTQ rights, and was actively engaged in many other critically important social and human rights causes. We are forever grateful to him and will miss his leadership by example.
