“I am writing to express the appreciation I have for the Maris Center for Women, they gave me an incredible opportunity to make my life better….As my time at Maris started to move toward the end the Maris Center helped me gain permanent housing through the YMCA….. It was difficult for me to save money for first and last as I remained in good standing paying rent to the Maris, The Maris Center awarded me my deposit to be able to move into my very own apartment, without their help I would never have been able to accept and maintain this wonderful opportunity to better my life…. I will forever be grateful to the Maris Center and all the Donors who make it possible.” --- Michelle P.


“We are most grateful to the CCB Foundation, for awarding Gavin Foundation a grant to benefit the Cushing House residents. Your gift helps us provide the highest quality substance abuse education and treatment programs, giving the gift of sobriety to those so desperately in need.

The funds were used to support two different parts of our program;

1) A portion of funds was used to purchase T Passes for twenty-one clients that were on job search.

2) The remaining funds were used to assist seven clients with securing residence in a certified sober home and basic needs like bed linens and towels.

Graduate quote:

My experience at Cushing House has been more than helpful. The friends I've made and the

people I've met are ones I'll remember forever. No other house would fit the needs I have like

Cushing. Thanks to the help of Cushing House staff and Gavin Foundation as a whole, I have a

better chance at keeping my job and staying sober . This place has given me a big head start on the road to success and I will be forever grateful. --Jake

Again, thank you for considering us a worthy program to honor your sons memory. It is only though contributions like yours, we are able to fulfill our mission the "Restoration of Dignity". Please know that you are a part of our clients' success”. --- John McGahan, President/CEO: Gavin Foundation
