The SHE RECOVERS FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. Our mission is to inspire hope, reduce stigma and empower women in or seeking recovery for behavioral health issues and other life challenges so they can increase their recovery capital, heal themselves, and help other women to do the same.
Our Urgent Plea for Support
Uncertainty and isolation during the current pandemic is throwing our world into a mental health crisis. Past traumas are surfacing for many. Increasing levels of anxiety and depression are being reported, and the risk of suicide will rise proportionately. Those recovering from substance use disorders are extremely vulnerable to relapse right now and eating disorders and binge eating are being ignited in individuals fearing food scarcity. Family trauma and domestic violence is increasing at alarming rates as quarantined living continues.
Women are desperately seeking connection and support during this unprecedented time in our history.
As a valued member of our community we are asking you to consider making a tax-deductible donation to the SHE RECOVERS Foundation (deductions available for U.S. donors only).
Your contribution will enable us to provide a lifeline to many more women during this critical time. There is no amount too large or too small. PLEASE DONATE today!
When women heal, families and communities heal too.
Our overarching goals and objectives are to provide women from all walks of life increased access to recovery resources, support and empowerment to find health, sustain long-term recovery, achieve their highest potential and help other women to do the same.
The Foundation, through its volunteer network, intends to:
- Increase the number of women in recovery and the quality and accessibility of recovery support services by establishing initiatives to support women in person, as well as online.
- Work with researchers to establish a more robust evidence base that includes best practices in the area of non-traditional support services to women related to their behavioral health.
- Reduce the stigma related to women and recovery through public awareness programs, the development of resource-rich online programs, and education of key policymakers, stakeholders and the general public.
Ensuring that the movement is inclusive of all women the Foundation will focus on priority populations such as young women with severe mental health issues, older women, and women from historically underserved populations (LGBTQI+, women of color, Indigenous women, incarcerated women, veterans, women with disabilities, etc.) to name a few.
