Help Us Reach Our Goal

Remedies is embarking on a capital campaign to raise two million dollars, which will fund the construction of our new “home.” We have been preparing for this move for over ten years. Land has been generously donated by Sunil Puri and First Midwest Group, floor plans and construction bids are complete, and fundraising is underway.

As Remedies prepares for this next, exciting chapter in our history,we look forward to a new building which will enable us to strengthen current community partnerships, develop new partnerships, increase and diversify programs offered to our clients, and host community discussions and education forums on domestic violence and substance abuse.

The work done at Remedies helps individuals become contributing members of our community and saves lives threatened by substance abuse and domestic violence. Won’t you help us to do more?

Our Challenge

Remedies’ current facility has the capacity to house 40 residents per night in our shelter and to provide counseling and lifesaving medication assisted therapy for people struggling with opiate addiction. Unfortunately our current location is undersized to meet the growing need for our programs and services.

In 2014 Remedies provided a total of 11,684 days of shelter to 461 shelter residents, including 5,565 days of shelter to 215 children, and treatment to 1,810 individuals struggling with addiction. That same year we were forced to turn away 116 adults and 128 children because our shelter was full, and 93 area residents died as a result of a drug overdose, more than half of which were heroin related.

The numbers speak for themselves, there is clearly an unmet need for services to assist victims of domestic violence and substance abuse, and for more preventive educational outreach programs to help end the cycle of abuse and addiction in our community.

Our New Home

Opening 2015

GroundB_Mobi

In order to meet the escalating demand for domestic violence and substance abuse related services in our community, Remedies must relocate to a larger facility. Our new, updated and larger space will allow staff to continue to provide addiction treatment services, shelter and advocacy for victims of domestic violence, and the opportunity to implement new programs and services. Our new home will be energy efficient, structurally sound and offer the ability to expand as needed. We will also be located in an area offering educational, employment and economic opportunities for all who seek services at Remedies.

The new facility has been designed to accommodate an increase in the number of shelter beds from 40 to 62. Included in our new floor plan is space dedicated to hosting community education forums, training sessions for clients and staff, as well as secure outdoor recreation and play areas for shelter residents, clients and staff, all in close proximity to public transportation to facilitate access to schools, employment and recreational activities.

Funding

In the same year Remedies celebrates its 60 year anniversary, we will
also break ground, construct and move into our new home. All of these
accomplishments are a dream come true, and are the result of many
years of hard work, commitment, and perseverance by the Remedies
board and staff.

Ten years ago the plan to begin saving for a new building was put in place. We are proud to state that through pragmatic leadership, prudent spending practices, and by following the strategic fiscal plan put in place by the Remedies board, $3.5 million has been set aside to cover a portion of the costs associated with our new building. These funds were set aside over a period of several years, during which time the integrity of the agency and the service and treatment goals set for our clients were consistently met, and often times exceeded.

With a solid financial foundation to build upon and the generous gift of land by Sunil Puri and First Midwest Group, it is time to begin building our dream home. We need your help to get to the finish line.

Facts:

Cost of entire project: $5.5 Million

Funds Dedicated to Project by Remedies: $3.5 Million

Capital Campaign Goal: $2 Million

Funds Raised to Date: $400,000

Total Needed: $1.6 Million
