My name is Tony Correa.  I am the the Executive Director of the B.Riley Sober house . We are located in Cleveland, Ohio.

B.Riley sober home is a  sober living  facility that focuses on meeting the unique needs of the LGBTQ community. We are a non-profit organization.
Our EIN # 81-4500441

Funds recieved from this campaign will contribute to the success of our clients in these ways: 

1.) aquiring the building with cash to reduce our monthly overhead
 2.) education material
 3.)  increase the awareness of the program  in Cleveland to receive additional support from other community organizations.

$57,000  will go towards purchasing the building and $18,000 will go towards the first years operating cost and education material. 

This is needed because there are no drug and alcohol treatment centers, sober homes or 3 quarter houses in Ohio, that meet the needs of LGBTQ community.

This community deals with the  fear, shame and dishonesty about being in the closet;  Also, those out of the closet deal with emotional stress  - including rejection, isolation,and low self esteem, as well as the threats of physical violence, prejudice and discrimination while also dealing  with the challenges of addiction.    

 We have partnered up with Connections Mental Health, and Stella Maris Treatment Center who will provide their expertise in Addiction Treatment, Mental Health, and Psycho-therapy for our clients. We will referr clients with medical/transitioning/and name changes to the PRIDE Clinic and Metro Health Hospital.

 HOW CAN YOU HELP ???

Your donation of $1000.00 -  will help pay for clients monthly service fees which include but are not limited  to A.O.D services, Mental health treatment and Psycotherapy work shops. 

Your donation of $500.00   -will help with the first years operating costs.

Your donation of $300.00 - will help with furnishing the sober home.

Your donation of $150.00- will help provide food for a month for new clients

Your donation of  $50.00 - will help with education material.

We will humbly accept any contribution that you can make and we will recognize you !

I wish I had the money to help but I don't. I'm sharing your page though to get the word out because I see the need for recovery services that let people be unafraid to seek help. God bless.

I would like to donate, as I have some money to donate to charity each year. My question is, What are your plans after the first year as far as keeping the facility open? How are you going to get your funding? I don't think you can just rely on GoFundMe every year. Could you please let me know, so I know im contributing to a cause that will have a lasting impact, and not one that only has a 1 year commitment.
