These grants make a significant difference. Examples include:
► A 30-year-old mother who needed a crib and mattress to reunify with her 10-month-old daughter after successfully completing Family Dependency Drug Court.
► A 62-year-old man who needed batteries for his power scooter so that he could attend treatment groups, self help meetings and successfully graduate from Drug Court. He has become a leader in the AA community.
► A 44-year-old woman who requested funds to go to college. She successfully graduated with an AA in psychology and is a Licensed Vocational Nurse. She said, “I am absolutely grateful. Without those funds from the Local Advisory Board, I’m not sure where I would be today.”
► A 28-year-old male who requested funds to purchase a welding helmet for welding classes. He is presently an “A” student, taking business classes and he is a full-time parent. He states, “I have many goals for my future. I’ve never been so happy.”
