Announcing Our CAI-MN 2014 Charitable Partner

by CAI-MN Charitable Outreach Committee

Our local Minnesota chapter’s charitable outreach committee has been hard at work interviewing potential charitable outreach partners for CAI-MN. Our mission was to find a state-wide partner where our CAI-MN Membership could mak­­e a huge difference! The merits of more than a dozen organizations were discussed and three were selected as finalists. In the end, the decision was unanimous.

The charitable outreach committee is excited to announce Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge as CAI-MN’s first charitable partner! Although there are many reasons we are eager to engage the CAI community in supporting Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge, one reason stood above the rest – addiction has touched or will touch everyone at some point in his or her life.

Did you know?
Today, Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge serves close to 450 residents on nine campuses around the state. It is the most effective recovery program of its kind, offering both short-term and long-term options, with a success rate of 79% for individuals who complete the 13 month program.

A tenth campus will be opening soon in Rochester, and Willmar has requested an eleventh campus in western Minnesota. In the months ahead you will learn of ways you can get involved as a community association, management company and vendor. In 2013, fundraising events included banquets/galas, fishing competitions, a golf scramble, and the annual walk for hope. In addition to these major events, there are ongoing mentoring and volunteer opportunities in which you can personally get involved.

As a committee, we look forward to enlisting the participation of our CAI-MN community. We are eager to support Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge, so get ready to hear stories of hope. Get ready to give and get involved. To learn more about CAI-MN’s Charitable Partner, go to http://www.mntc.org or call CAI-MN Outreach Committee Cliff Kurth at 763-248-1047.
