Meeting: Eugene Mission - Women's Life Change Program December 12, 2023 3:30pm
The experience of women with addiction differs from that of men. In order to be restored to lives of sobriety, hope, and independence, women need a program that responds to the complex factors that bring them to the Eugene Mission’s door. With your support, the Women’s Life Change, a no-cost-to-participant residential addiction recovery and relapse-prevention program, is that program.
Women'sGift holds 11 meetings a year. At 10 of these monthly meetings, most hosted at a member's home, a pre-selected local nonprofit makes a presentation, answers questions, and then receives a donation.
In the Spring, we conduct our annual fundraiser.
Prior to COVID Women'sGift held an annual Scrabble Luncheon. In 2023, we are considering holding this event in the Fall. If you want to be notified about the luncheon, please contact the Fundraiser Chair.
If you are interested in attending any meeting, please contact us. We always welcome those who wish to visit, and hopefully to become new members!
In addition to the regular monthly meetings and the Annual Fundraiser, Women'sGift has these two annual events:
- August: Donate back-to-school backpacks and school supplies to school children
November: Holiday support for families in need
