Deets: On February 18th we will join hearts for a fabulous night of dining and entertainment, in an effort to raise money and awareness for the young women of Freehab. Freehab, a program under The Teen Project © umbrella, is an 85 bed, completely freedrug treatment center with onsite vocational schooling for young women (ages 18-26) who are incarcerated, sex trafficked and addicted. It is the only free drug treatment center that exists for homeless young women in the country as well as the only rehab that combines drug treatment with vocational schooling for its patients. Freehab affords our most vulnerable female youth the opperntunity for a full life tranformation via sobriety, job training and a life sustaining career path, all at zero cost to our clients. Since its inception in 2014, Freehab has provided free treatment to a staggering 439 young women. It is our heart's mission to continue growing this wildly sucsessful program. In 2017 we are slated to add 16 more crisis beds in partnership with the Department of Mental Health as well as to break ground on a state of the art, fully licensed school. We hope to see you this February for a truly heart-inspired evening not to be missed.
