A Fundraiser benefiting Friends of the Haven
Substance use disorder is a growing epidemic throughout our community and the impact on women and their children is especially devastating. The Friends of The Haven, is a 501 [c] 3 non-profit organization established expressly to support and advocate for women in recovery, including women who are alone, are pregnant or who are with their infant children.
The Haven offers long-term residential treatment for these women that addresses their substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders. Women are in residence with their infants, providing a fully integrated, two-generation model.
Baby Haven Child Care Center supports families in recovery by providing high-quality childcare a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters the growth of each child while mothers participate in treatment activities. While the women are engaged in intensive treatment, children receive an array of therapeutic health, educational and assessment services at Baby Haven.Together these programs work to break the cycle of poverty and substance use.
The 5th Annual Friends of The Haven Gala will bring together over 250 individuals, business and civic organizations in support of women and their families in recovery. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in support of programs to ensure the children at Baby Haven continue to receive the high quality, licensed childcare that helps them thrive and enable their mothers to graduate from the Haven's year-long residential recovery program with reduced repayment debt. Your financial support and awareness are vitally important to empowering the women to create safe, sober, and successful lives for themselves and their families.
Join us in responding to our community's substance use epidemic by making a difference for those women seeking a better, brighter, substance-free life!
