“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Seabrook Foundation is truly excited to partner with OceanFirst Foundation to participate in this year's Charity Challenge. For our Campaign we chose to focus on raising funds for our Patient Care Fund. Our Patient Care Fund is as young as Seabrook (44 years that is!), though it did not always carry that name. From the beginning, Seabrook has searched for ways to save lives. The Patient Care Fund provides financial assistance to qualifying families whose resources fall short of being able to access care. Because of the support of the Patient Care Fund, we are able to make sure that when someone reaches out for help, we are able to fully provide them with the support they need to change their lives. You can be a part of that change, and you must.
"After surviving the trauma of being sexually abused from ages five to thirteen by her own father, she spent her years believing she was “dirty” and “bad”. She would pursue anything that could “get her out of her own head.” ... When an accident led to hurting her back and receiving pain pills, she spiraled so far down that she lost her job. A failed engagement was followed by drinking and abuse of pain killers and a plan to kill herself.... After a month in Seabrook's Residential program, she tried to get into our Extended Care program. She was denied coverage by her insurance company. Two weeks later someone from Seabrook called and told her she was going to the Extended Care program. Without our generous donations, that opportunity might not have been available to her or many of our patients who are able to stay longer because of it. Seabrook provides treatment of co-occurring disorders but we’re only getting started; it can and will be so much better....Now? She says, “I love Seabrook,” and you can hear it in her voice. She came to Seabrook with no coping skills at all, a borderline personality disorder and severe trauma. She says “I learned all of the things I didn’t learn growing up. It’s still a struggle, but I see things differently and I deal with things better.” She attends monthly Alumni meetings and she really looks forward to them."
