When we prevent the child maltreatment that results from addiction, we increase the chances that children will reach their full potential and grow into healthy, productive members of society.
Abba’s Embrace 24 hour crisis nursery program will help families in crisis, including addict-mothers who need inpatient or outpatient treatment. Upon completion, we will offer daycare for her infants & preschool children as she receives life skills, job & parenting skills as well as on-going support for her substance abuse.
We envision each community in which we are serving to benefit from our preventative approach. By stimulating the brain to function on peer level, it will help to promote literacy and reduce future drug use, crime and incarcerations.
Our center will be established in Indianapolis, Indiana. We have created a program that is simple and easily duplicatable so as to grow throughout America where there is a large population of babies born hooked.
Every $1 spent on prevention saves society $10.
