AAPA’s official philanthropy is the Mary Hall Freedom House, Inc., an organization that “empowers women to break the cycle of addiction, poverty, and homelessness.”
Mary Hall Freedom House, AAPA’s philanthropy, was established in 1996 by Lucy Hall-Gainer in memory of her Mother. Her Mother died of alcoholism when Lucy was six years old; however, the impressions her Mother made on her life inspired a life-long commitment to establish a comprehensive residential recovery program for women and women with children.
Today, MHFH is a nationally recognized leader in gender-specific residential substance abuse. It represents thousands of individuals whose lives have been changed daily in its facilities that provide day treatment, outpatient care, residential and mental health treatment. In addition, its services include family counseling, medical, dental, pediatric, and vision care. It has a day care center as well as an after school program for older children.
Their needs are many. In addition to feminine products, tampons, and Depends®, gift cards are most appreciated from Kroger, Publix, Dollar stores, Target, Big Lots, K-Mart, etc. These cards are used by MHFH personnel for the individual needs of women and children. In view of the fact that their Wish List may change on a monthly basis contact Carol Harman, Delta Gamma (firstname.lastname@example.org) to determine current needs. Sorority assignments are made at the beginning of AAPA’s year.
They are very appreciative of any donations that members of AAPA make.
