New Directions for Women takes pride in the relationships we create and maintain with our surrounding community. Every year we strive to create community through our Annual Open House. This year was no different as neighbors, staff, NDFW Alumnae, and recovery community supporters and their families joined us for food, fellowship, and fun.
We featured something for every member in the family. For the kids, we featured a giant bounce house and face painting. For adults, we featured free chair massages and a Repeat Boutique mini-sale, which gave both education and relaxation after a long day. For the family we featured free caricature portraits and an opportunity to make butterflies using arts and crafts.
The soulful sounds of Troy Heidemann and Mike McKenna filled our campus and not stomach was empty after a catered dinner by our Chef Glenda for more than 120 attendees.
Everyone who attended was afforded an opportunity to participate in a opportunity drawing that featured top-of-the-line prizes, including a brand new laptop, romantic and therapeutic dinners, luxury Photography, and much more. Money raised, through donations and raffle participation, goes to the improving the quality addiction treatment services we offer.
