Our teens in our addiction recovery program have a request—an outdoor space. Our youth in this program spend most of the day in a classroom. The Burrell Foundation has a goal of raising funds to give these kids an outdoor outlet. Improvements will include exercise and recreational equipment, an outdoor classroom, a garden and more.
With your donation, you can play a direct role in helping kids in the Ozarks heal, grow and thrive.
About Burrell Youth Recovery Services:
Knowing how to cope with stress, anxiety and life’s ups and downs is a skill many of us take for granted. For youth, these skills are not always taught or learned. This, plus untreated mental illness, leads to 10 million youth each year in the US who are in need of substance use treatment. However, among the millions, only 1 in 10 of these kids receives the professional treatment they deserve.
Through youth substance use recovery services, Burrell is committed to helping kids and teens learn the skills needed to have a healthier, happier future – without dependence on drugs or alcohol. Burrell Youth CSTAR (Comprehensive Substance Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Program) provides youth age 12-18 with all levels of group, individual and family therapy in residential and outpatient settings.
A Big Burrell 'Thank You!'
With your love, support and encouragement, the Burrell Foundation was able to raise just over $11,000 at yesterday's Give Ozarks event- funds that will help to provide a more-than-adequate outdoor space for our youth in addiction recovery to heal and thrive.
We are overwhelmed and touched by your outpouring, and excited to share future initiatives with you in an effort to provide sufficient mental health support and inspire HOPE in our communities. Our hearts are full because of YOU!
Be Blessed and Be Well,
-Gabrielle (Gabe) Martin & the Burrell Foundation Family
