Just4Today Sober Living received a $6300.00 grant from the UPS Foundation, which drives global corporate citizenship and philanthropic programs for UPS (NYSE:UPS).
The grant has been used to secure computers to be placed in the recovery homes for members to do job searches, file resume', set appointments, gain computer skills, on-line education, and to communicate in our tech world today.
The Just4Today Sober Living program is designed to offer recovery housing and supervision for both men and women quitting active addiction and attempting to set up a new life free of active addiction. Here members meet and settle consequences, participate in counseling, reestablish and repair family contacts, make appointments, find gainful employment, restore their health, and work a program to change the thinking to change their behavior. We have been in existence for 7 years and maintain 6 homes, became a 501(c)3 company in 2014, and no staff members take any pay.
The UPS Foundation was established in 1951 and is based in Atlanta, GA. In 2017, UPS and its employees, active and retired, invested more than $118 million in charitable giving.
"The UPS Foundation is honored to support the Just4Today Sober Living program," said Edwardo Martinez president of the UPS Foundation. And we here at Just4Today Sober Living wish to personally thank Ms. L. Harting and her group of volunteers who spent 50 volunteer hours painting the inside of one of our homes while landscaping two other homes one Saturday morning.
