Publicado el 23 de julio de 2019
Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation ha entregado a Unshattered, Inc. una subvención de $5,000 para invertir en el desarrollo y la elaboración de un plan de formación para ayudar a exadictas con capacitación y desarrollo profesional. Cada parte del programa identificará, estructurará y ofrecerá una capacitación que ayude a las mujeres a ser buenas empleadas y valiosas integrantes de la comunidad, y además las alienta a ser personas adultas exitosas y luchadoras.
"Many studies show that community, personal development, and employment are keys to long term sobriety. Our success metrics are proving it. To scale our organization and impact more women, we need to invest in a curriculum and the resources needed to successfully build and execute this," said Kelly Lyndgaard, Founder/CEO, Unshattered, Inc. "We are grateful for this investment from Ulster Savings to help us achieve this," she added.
As a nonprofit organization, Unshattered's mission is to end relapse by employing women who are winning their battle against addiction. The organization began as a fundraising project-making handbags from repurposed, upcycled materials-and teaching women at the Hoving Home-a faith-based substance abuse treatment center-to make them. In 2016, Unshattered was created offering full-time jobs for women in recovery. Since that time they have experienced zero relapses on their payroll. 100% of their product sales go directly to employment and benefits for women in recovery.
La Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation fue creada en 2003 para ayudar a la comunidad local en las áreas de vivienda, educación y servicios humanos.
