B.Riley Sober House
My name is Tony Correa. I am the the Executive Director of the B.Riley Sober house . We are located in Cleveland, Ohio.
You can find us on the web at: WWW.Brileysoberhome.org
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.

Thanks for reading and taking the time out to HELP... and if you havent yet, DONATE NOW !
We have a residents coming up on 90 days sober who will be successfully completing our program on the 16th and 1 more resident who will be successfully graduating our halfway program and moving into our 3/4 portion of the program !
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.
