Pioneer Nonprofit Supporting People Living With Chronic Mental Illnesses Embraces Generosity of Delivery Agent

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2008) - Conard House, a nonprofit organization helping San Francisco residents self-manage chronic mental illness, is today extending its appreciation to Delivery Agent for contributing much-needed clothing, bedding and bath goods to Conard House clients. The donations will be distributed to those living in the organization's numerous supportive housing communities. Delivery Agent Inc. is a leader in shopping-enabled entertainment for television shows, motion pictures, sports and music videos.

The gifts will be instrumental in the continuing efforts of Conard House, which has been on the cutting edge of serving the needs of people living with chronic mental illness in San Francisco since 1960. With programs including supportive housing, residential treatment and supportive employment, Conard House delivers community-based resources to help people self-manage mental illness. By providing personalized, reliable access to a variety of self-management resources, Conard House helps clients to navigate public systems of care, giving them both hope and the ability to take responsibility for a life defined more by aspirations than by illness.

"We have seen the good that can come of organizations like Conard House taking the time to enact change in a community's ability to care for those who are underserved and overlooked," said Mike Fitzsimmons, CEO of Delivery Agent. "We strive to collaborate with organizations that will further these goals and this is the driving force behind our efforts with Conard House."

"We deeply appreciate organizations like Delivery Agent for building a relationship with Conard House and the community we serve," said Richard Heasley, Conard House executive director. "San Francisco companies and individual citizens have continually shown willingness to give of themselves, and this generosity can really impact the lives of people who are in the grips of today's most invisible, under-treated and misunderstood health issue -- chronic mental illness."
