Elevating the Maternal Treatment Program

Addicted Mothers and their Newborn Babies

  1. With your help, last year we were able to designate over $150,000 towards the opening of our Maternal Treatment Program, a team committed to helping drug-addicted mothers and their newborn babies. Since its opening in June, seven babies have been born and the program has reached capacity with over 30 women enrolled. At Rialzo IX, we’ll continue to raise additional funds for the Maternal Treatment Program so that we can serve more women and expand services.
