The Children's Foundation Fund: Creating Hope and Reducing Barriers to Recovery
Time & Location
While a tremendous number of adolescents and young adults suffer from the devastation caused by substance use disorders and mental health diagnoses, access to effective and affordable care is often out of reach. Insurance companies’ reimbursements are insufficient and restrictive — preventing individuals from securing the ideal length and type of treatment.
What’s more, many people in need of care are uninsured and unable to pay for any type of health care services: According to a 2019 study by The Michigan Health Endowment Fund, 40 percent of those suffering from mental illness and 27 percent of those suffering from substance use disorders cited cost as the #1 factor that prevented them from receiving care.
At our June Family Forum, guest speakers Larry Burns, CEO of The Children’s Foundation, and Ryann Feldman, MSW, program manager of the Feinberg Hope Foundation, will discuss the Detroit organization’s newly established program supporting adolescents and youth affected by substance use disorders: The Children’s Foundation Fund.
The fund aims to break through financial barriers by providing hope for those in recovery and their families and friends. The largest funder dedicated solely to advancing the health and wellness of children and families in Michigan and beyond, The Children’s Foundation will administer the program via the Feinberg Hope Foundation.
Those in recovery, their family and friends, addiction treatment professionals, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about the program are encouraged to attend.
