The Jackie Nitschke Center H.A.L.O. Campaign —
To raise $2 million to meet the community's substance abuse challenge.
Our goal is to double the number of clients we serve in the next three years.
• We award two scholarships each month at a value of $7,500. One scholarship covers 6 months of treatment expenses for an individual and his or her family members.
- Scholarship recipients are asked to contribute what they can afford, to invest themselves.
We are extremely honored to be co-chairs of this remarkable effort to support
the Jackie Nitschke Center. There is no greater service than helping people heal
and regain a happy, productive, hopeful life. We are proud to be a part of
that endeavor and encourage everyone to JOIN US.
