With our holistic approach of addressing the needs of participants and their families, over 90% of our graduates stay clean and sober and out of the criminal justice system.

Funds for housing maintenance & supervision costs related to the management of sober living homes and for transportation & support services to the participants' families, including practical services such as home repair & providing food & toys for the children at Christmas are needed.
