RECOVERY CAPITAL FUNDS

Many people endure an abundance of financial burdens while staying sober, such as paying off debt accrued from their addictions, court costs, child support, previous overdue taxes and more. Access To Recovery believes that these types of financial barriers should not prohibit someone from succeeding in their recovery process. We award small financial assistance grants to help indigent individuals experiencing hardships associated with addiction. These funds can help to access safe sober housing, transportation and basic needs as well as eliminate barriers to securing gainful employment.

Our Recovery Capital Funds are provided entirely with donations and are administered in part by our team of Volunteer Ambassadors. Each Ambassador works closely with closely with individuals to ensure they qualify for our funding and are connected to a recovery community that helps to boost their social capital.

   If you have no income or money in savings and are in need of financial assistance for recovery/sober housing or other basic needs that impede your ability to build recovery capital, please reach out to one of our volunteer ambassadors below to see if we can help:
