Organization: Mount St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation – Lewiston, NY.
Project: Recovery Support Program (For Soon To Be Mom’s).
Problem: Support groups for those undergoing medical treatment for addiction is essential. When it is pregnant women, and women of childbearing age who are suffering from addiction, it becomes even more critical. The lives of their children in pregnancy and during parenting are greatly affected when addiction is present. Support groups are shown to positively impact the participants.
Solution: Mount St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation will host support groups for pregnant women and for women of childbearing age who are in medical treatment for addiction. Funds from Capture Cares will be used to purchase lock boxes for medication, healthy meals for group participants, gift cards for immediate needs, newborn items, reading material/education specific to recovery and transportation assistance. The purpose of the program is to fully prepare expecting parents for their upcoming deliveries. This will include information on NAS, issues during pregnancy, what to expect at the hospital and beyond.
Here at CaptureRx, we are honored to support Capture Cares and its continued effort to enable the missions of covered entities. This is just one example of how grants can be used to impact communities and their patients.
