What is the New Directions for Women Foundation?
Our Mission: “Our Foundation exists to provide investors with a forum to give enduring financial security to New Directions for Women enabling the operating organization opportunities to provide treatment for women, children and their families, with a vision of achieving lifetime recovery and wellness.”
We have always been committed to breaking down any barriers between women entering recovery, whether that’s childcare or the cost of long term care. Our Foundation was created to fund partial scholarships so women can stay in treatment for the extent and duration of time they need to recovery from the disease of substance use disorder. Our goal is for our patients to get the holistic care they need for their bodies, minds, and spirits to heal, not what insurance or their ability to privately pay dictates. While we don’t give 100% scholarships (we believe women and families must have some “skin in the game”), we do provide over 90% of our patients with some level of financial assistance.

Where should I direct my gift? What are New Directions for Women’s current priorities?
Our greatest need is for the Pamela Wilder Scholarship fund, which goes directly to help pay for the treatment of women who otherwise would not be able to afford care. There may be program you feel passionately about and would like to specifically support. Some options may include: our children’s program, funding a therapist’s work throughout the year, or even supporting our nutrition program. Please give our Development Office a call so that we can share more information.
