Prestera Center - Renaissance Place

Oct. 27, 2012 @ 12:12 AM

The 2012 campaign is under way for The United Way of the River Cities with a goal of $1.25 million. Reaching that goal helps fund programs for more than 20 Tri-State agencies that provide vital services in Cabell, Wayne, Mason and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County, Ohio. One of those partners is the Prestera Center -- Renaissance Place.

Program mission: Helps addicted women break the cycle of their addiction. This program also targets the children by providing resources to assure their age appropriate development as well as prevention resources to assure that they do not turn to substance abuse in their lives.

Outcome: All children residing at the Renaissance Pinecrest campus with their mothers for at least 6 months achieve developmental milestones on schedule or demonstrate effective prevention, coping, and safety skills (depending on their age) and, these children will receive age appropriate Child Development Specialist services at least 4 days a week.

How you can help: Give through the campaign where you work or visit www.giveunitedway.org. For more information, contact Scott Neill at scott.neill@unitedwayrivercities.org or 304-523-8929, Ext. 2.
