Mayor Fanucci will receive the prestigious 2022 Mental Health Distinguished Community Leadership Award for his outstanding contributions to and service in the greater Vineland/Cumberland County area. In addition to his support for mental health initiatives, he will be recognized and thanked for his dedicated work supporting education, law enforcement, first responders and veterans. The Guidance Center will also recognize Mayor Fanucci’s contribution to environmentally sustainable economic development while maintaining our community’s agricultural heritage.

Mayor Fanucci’s dedication to improving community mental health includes passionate support for first responders and law enforcement who often find themselves engaged in critical and dangerous incidents caused by someone in mental health crisis. At the same time, Mayor Fanucci has committed himself and the resources of the City to finding solutions to homelessness, which often has mental illness and co-occurring addiction as its root causes.
