Implementation of Relapse Prevention Program For Men

Our plan is to raise awareness, be engaged with you, the potential donor, and raise funds that will allow us to do more for the suffering individual

 

Our intent is to educate the you on the problems, and inspire you to walk with us in any way you can. 

 

We cannot alone solve all of the problems that come with mental health concerns. We focus on an abstinence and 12 step based program, that has stood the test of time for 46 years and have given thousands of men and women a chance at living their best lifes.

 

We ask you to join us for coffee at the "House" to discuss the possibility of support.

With our current model, intake support from AHS and a yearly average of $238,000 of fundraising contributions, we can currently maintain a full year of treatment for men and women.

With a focus on fundraising efforts we can increase our women outpatient programs, and reinforce our alumni, return to work, return to family, and relapse prevention programs.

 

Fundraising can also allow us to upgrade our facility, kitchen, and our building.
