Waiting for the

LIFE Recovery Gala?

Our Love for LIFE campaign will allow us to share how our residential recovery program supports women struggling with addiction. This last year, as other organizations and businesses had to close their doors, LIFE Recovery stayed open and support for our clients remained strong. Because of your encouragement and donations, staff are still providing a structured and supportive Christian community for women who desire to live a lifestyle free from drug and alcohol addiction. Because those who come to our doors, need us.

Grocery Fund

Since 2017, a gala tradition has specifically included raising funds to keep the LIFE Recovery kitchen fully stocked.  When all beds are full with 15 ladies, it can cost up to $150 per day to keep our clients

nourished. In the first year after stepping away from alcohol or drugs, teaching the essentials of a sensible diet and healthy eating habits are part of our program.  Providing our clients balanced meals is one of the ways LIFE Recovery provides exceptional care.

$150/day X 7 days a week = $1,050 per week

$1,050/week X 4 weeks = $4,200 per month

$4,200/month X 12 months = $50,400 needed each year

Trauma Support

A pandemic is a great equalizer in that none of us can escape its effects. Individuals who have until now led healthy, “normal” lives with access to information and  resources,

Therapist

supportive families and back-up plans are struggling. We search for assurances and a date when this will be over. We look at how this is impacting us now and the long term effects. People openly speak of their anxiety in the simple tasks of daily living like grocery shopping and going to the bank. We hear about the increase in cases of domestic violence and overdose deaths and many are talking about trauma.

For those struggling with addiction, trauma and its impact is nothing new. Experts in the field of addiction will tell you that one of the root causes of addiction is trauma.

 

To better serve our clients, we need to provide support from a Licensed Trauma Therapist. This is specialized support, and it is expensive – averaging $200 per hour.  Our plan is to establish a fund for clients who require this type of support in their recovery. For most clients, this would not begin immediately but within the first month of their arrival and would continue bi-weekly during their stay. For those who continue on to Second Stage, it would be offered once per month for the first 6 months.

$200/hour X 6 sessions = $1200 during first stage

$200/hour X 6 sessions = $1200 during second stage

Totals $2,400 needed for the transformative work of Trauma Therapy in ONE PERSON

In 2020, with lowered occupancy limits, we had 76 clients at First Stage. Not all will access Trauma Therapy, as some “just can’t go there”, but we are asking you to help us start somewhere.

 

We commit to accountability to our donors and look forward to reporting back to you next year on the benefits of your investment in the lives of our clients.
