43rd Elwyn Ball Honoree: The Widger Family

The Widger Family – Chuck and Barbara with children Ashley and Clark – partnered with Elwyn to create Clark’s Manor, which is a new, innovative residential therapeutic program for adults with chronic mental illness. Named in honor of Clark, the Manor is the first therapeutic milieu-style private-pay independent living facility in tri-state area, filling a need and providing a level of care previously unavailable.


Until the advent of Clark’s Manor, families often spent years searching for this type of care, only to land somewhere in another part of the country. This cutting edge, transformational program is a huge victory for the mental health industry and for the Philadelphia region with the real winners being the residents and their families.


Chuck Widger is a partner in East Bay Merchant Partners, a family investment firm, with Ashley. He was the founder and Executive Chairman of Brinker Capital Investments, which is now a division of Orion. Chuck is a graduate of Gettysburg College and the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. He also holds an L.L.M. in taxation from Boston University’s School of Law. Additionally, Chuck served as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy.
