John Tavolacci wrote -At any one time, Odyssey House is home to 120 pregnant women, young mothers and their children. These women enter treatment with very little, seeking a drug-free life for themselves and a brighter future for their families. Grant and government funding covers much of the costs of treatment – counseling sessions, parenting classes – but it doesn’t cover everything. This is where you come in.
Your donation can give a pregnant woman the support she needs to stay in treatment and deliver a healthy baby; a young mother the basic necessities as she begins a new, sober life; or a child the materials to make his stay at Odyssey House feel like home.
My sons and I running the NYC Marathon to help these families get back on their feet. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000. And don’t forget to spread the word to your family and friends! Thank you for your support.
