SECU Foundation provides grant for new women’s treatment center

Posted

Samaritan Colony, a nonprofit residential treatment facility for men with chemical dependency, received a boost of support from the SECU Foundation to help facility administrators further their vision of opening a residential substance abuse treatment center for women. The announcement was made in Hamlet during a joint State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Advisory Board meeting where SECU Foundation Board Chair Bob Brinson presented Samaritan Colony officials with a ceremonial check for a $40,000 Capacity Building grant.

The foundation’s grant will help the nonprofit address organizational growth and long-term sustainability for the expansion of services and the addition of a new women’s inpatient treatment center.

Samaritan Colony has been delivering quality, evidenced-based treatment to those suffering from addiction by providing education and support in a safe, secure, and structured therapeutic environment for more than four decades.The nonprofit serves individuals within the eight-county area of Anson, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph and Richmond counties. The addition of a women’s center will fill a critical need in this region, as there is currently no facility offering this model of treatment for women within a 100-mile radius.
