Vantage Health System (VHS) and The DACKKs Group recently celebrated their upcoming merger at a fundraising event held at The Brick House, in Wyckoff, New Jersey.  The merger will enable both agencies to provide more supportive housing and comprehensive outpatient, in-home and residential and supportive housing services to individuals with mental health, addiction, and developmental disabilities within Bergen County. Two hundred donors from both organizations gathered at the event, which honored Karen Amy, founder and president of The DACKKs Group, who will soon retire.  Vicki Sidrow, CEO of Vantage Health System shared, “This merger will allow us to continue to save and change even more lives each day. We are thrilled with the expansion of supportive housing.”

Thanks to the merger, Vantage Health System will now be able to focus on developing more safe, decent, and affordable housing for the homeless and people living with disabilities. Both VHS and The DACKKs Group purchase, maintain, and manage properties throughout Bergen County to rent to those in need at 30% of their income, regardless of what it may be. Joining together, these two driven non-for profit organizations will own and operate 17 properties, serving 87 individuals with special needs. By combining their strengths, the merger will certainly be able to more efficiently serve the community, providing a ‘leg up’ rather than a ‘hand out’.

About Vantage Health System and The DACKKs Group: Both Vantage and DACKKs are 501©(3) non-profit corporations in New Jersey that strive to make a difference in the lives of homeless and special needs populations. Vantage Health System celebrates 58 years of providing comprehensive outpatient, in-home and residential and supportive housing services to individuals with mental health, addiction, and developmental disabilities along with eldercare challenges for 3,000 people a year in Bergen County. The DACKKs group, providing supportive housing in 11 homes in five communities, has been making a significant difference for 14 years.
