SALVATION ARMY’S SOBER LIVING HOME IS 2017 BENEFICIARY
The primary beneficiary of the 2017 Rotary Desert Sun Golf Classic will be the Salvation Army for the construction of a Transitional Sober Living Home in Roswell. The residence will help local graduates of the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Program in Albuquerque make a successful transition to a sober and productive life in Chaves County.
The Salvation Army’s project was selected after a careful review of more than twenty requests from local charitable groups, some of which may also be funded if the tournament is as successful as in past years.
According to Lt. Joe West, Roswell Corps Officer, the residence will provide much needed support for Roswell area men who have completed the six-month Albuquerque drug and alcohol program and dramatically improves their chances of success.
“Men will be able to stay for up to a year,” said West. “They will be required to have a job and attend weekly 12-step meetings, chapel services and mentoring along with random drug and alcohol testing. Based on the results of our transitional home in Phoenix this residence will more than quadruple our local success rate.”
“These men want to stay clean and sober but they want to live near their families, West continued. “This home will give them a structured support system that allows them to be part of the children’s and parent’s lives.”
The four-bedroom residence will be built adjacent to the Salvation Army’s current location at 612 West College. Proceeds from the Rotary Desert Sun Golf Classic will complete the funding of the $140,000 project. When finished the home will be self-sufficient.
Your participation and sponsorship will help make the worthwhile project a reality.
