WHO WE HELP
We support individuals and families already engaged in a program of recovery, who are ready for the next step, yet lack the financial means to move forward. While we evaluate each case individually, our typical recipient has some sober time, is actively involved in a 12-step program, and has specific goals to begin a new life. Along these lines, he/she is also in need of general financial assistance for interview attire, sober/transitional housing, life coaching, family coaching, and/or therapeutic or clinical services, to continue building upon their new foundation.
HOW WE HELP
By providing financial support for access to such services, people in recovery remain immersed a recovery-focused regimen, tailored to their needs, and are positioned to overcome the most common factors which lead to relapse: extreme financial hardship, a lack of “safe” housing, unhealthy/uneducated family system dynamics, underdeveloped coping skills, and a lack of professional guidance on how to move forward. We support individuals and families throughout the recovery journey at any stage, in order to achieve long-term sobriety and live a productive life. When additional financial resources are needed The A&A Foundation is here to help.
