IICF’s financial support has helped Freedom House provide housing and wrap around recovery support to mothers recovering from addiction. “The Family Afterward” is one of a rare few programs ensuring that mothers and children remain together and that women who have lost temporary custody of their children to foster care as a result of their addiction can reunite with them in this residential program. The impact of IICF’s support has been profound in returning children to their mother’s arms! These contributions have enabled us to serve families in need that would otherwise have to be turned away due to lack of funding and are helping mothers transition to total self-sufficiency, independently raising, nurturing and supporting their children upon graduation from the program. IICF funds help Freedom House to save lives, reunite families, and provide prevention for the next generation.
