The new Women’s Recovery Center, currently under construction in Grand Junction, Colorado, just received a significant financial lift that will hopefully encourage others to make a donation to the new, state-of-the-art facility that is due to open this summer.

The Daniels Fund recently awarded a grant of $200,000 to Mind Springs Health, which will be used to help fund the construction of the new Women’s Recovery Center near the intersection of E and 32 Roads.  The new facility will replace the existing Women’s Recovery Center after the lease expires in June.

The Women’s Recovery Center is a 90-day intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation and transitional living program, exclusively for women, specializing in holistic recovery. It is the only ‘women-only’ program on the Western Slope and one of the few programs in Colorado that permits children (under the age of 10) to stay with their mothers during their residential treatment.

“We couldn’t be more honored to be the recipient of such a substantial grant from the Daniels Fund,” said Roger Sheffield, President of the Mind Springs Foundation.  “The grant requires that we secure 75% of the $3 million fundraising goal in philanthropic support in order to receive the Daniels Fund Grant.  We are asking the communities we serve for their help in raising the additional funds for the Women’s Recovery Center.  All financial gifts, no matter what the size, will help build the new center and improve the delivery of innovative services and increase access to care.”
