More than 300 Orange County community members gathered on March 19 to help raise nearly $500,000 toward a scholarship program for women in need of drug and alcohol treatment.
The event, Circle of Life Breakfast, was hosted by New Directions for Women (NDFW), a nationally accredited drug and alcohol rehab program executively serving women, including pregnant women and mothers.
At the event, NDFW introduced its new executive director, Sue Bright, a 26-year veteran of the addiction and recovery field, who shared her vision for the future of the organization. Highlights of the event included testimonies from an alumna, an alumna’s husband, and from an 8-year-old daughter who stayed at NDFW while her mother was going through treatment.
