MomandtwodaughtersMore women will be able to receive comprehensive recovery treatment in a safe residence with their children so they can rebuild their lives while creating a healthier Kansas City community.  ReDiscover intends to break the intergenerational cycle of addiction through ReDiscover's Women and Children's Campus at Friendship House and Catherine’s Place by redirecting the lives of women recovering from chemical dependency and giving their children the opportunity to heal and grow in a safe and supportive environment. 

Support of the Women and Children's Campus at Friendship House and Catherine’s Place represents a proactive step in helping women develop and regain their ability to become financially self-reliant.  Helping women to break the cycle of familial substance abuse reduces the costly need for medical and social services for their children now and into the future.  An investment in ReDiscover Women and Children's Campus at Friendship House and Catherine’s Place becomes an investment in the Greater Kansas City community.  For each woman in recovery, 6 to 10 other lives are positively touched according to the national institute on Drug Addiction.  More than 1,300 lives a year will be enhanced by your gift.  Thank you for your consideration of gifting this important campaign.
