Guest House Participates in #GivingTuesday

giving-tuesday-saturday-e-blast

After two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday –#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back. This year, Guest House is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Since its founding in 2012, millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

Guest House is a 501 C3 non-profit and our mission is to provide the information, education, treatment and care needed to assure that clergy, men and women religious, and seminarians suffering from alcoholism, addictions and other behavioral health conditions have the best opportunity for quality recovery and overall health and wellness.

Because of our donors, Guest House has never had to turn someone away for financial reasons.  In 2015 we gave away more than $1,000,000 of uncompensated care.  Your gift of $25, $50 or more will directly impact treatment and help return a priest, sister or religious person to active ministry.  The vast majority of our clients return to their ministries, as teachers and professors, as hospital and health services employees, in hospices and in other helping organizations or services, such as jails, shelters, recovery residences, rehabilitation centers and “soup kitchens.”

We encourage you to join the movement and  visit us at  www.guesthouse.org/donate/ to learn more about how you can make a difference at Guest House.

Many Blessings,

Erika Walker

Vice President of Development
