2017: $10,000 to Georgia's Healing House


2017GeorgiasHealingHouseGeorgia’s Healing House (GHH), a program of Georgia’s Friends, serves women during their initial stages of recovery from alcohol and drug dependency by providing a safe place to live, an individualized treatment plan, individual mentorship, and support as women reenter the workplace. In the first two years, 42 women resided at GHH, all of whom remained free of drugs and alcohol during their stay. Seventeen successfully completed the program and 12 are still receiving care. There is no other supervised supportive residential program in the Charlottesville area for women in early recovery from addiction.

The Women United award will support the operation of the house, which can accommodate 12 women at a time, for approximately two and a half months, as the cost for each woman is about $1000.00 per month.
