Gratitude House Hosts Annual Tea
and Celebrates 40th Anniversary



WEST PALM BEACH, FL - Gratitude House, the West Palm Beach-based facility dedicated to treating chemically dependent women, marked 40 years of serving the community at its Annual Tea event.


The open house event recognized Carol Basinger for her more than 20 years of volunteer service on the Board of Directors, and her work at the organization's thrift store.  Maggie Christian was also honored for more than 15 years of service on the Board of Directors and for sitting on the Advisory Board.


The Wachovia Foundation and The Walter and Adi Blum Foundation were also honored for their support and dedication to furthering the mission of this West Palm Beach  women’s treatment facility.


Grants provided from both foundations were used to help fund Gratitude House’s “ Mothers & Infants in Treatment Together (MITT), a program for pregnant and postpartum women, specifically designed so that newborns and infants can live in residence with their mothers as they receive chemical dependency treatment.  Unlike traditional models that ask women to choose between drug treatment and continuing to parent their infants, MITT allows infants to receive therapeutic services concurrent to their mother’s treatment


Located at 1700 North Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach, Gratitude House is one of the only places in the country that treats pregnant women and women with infants, with the mission to return these women to society as self-sufficient, productive members.  Through the Gratitude House programs, women receive treatment for drug and alcohol dependency issues, as well as parenting classes and life skills that make it possible to live independent, substance-free sober lives.  The women are taught how to deal with their addictions, and with the life events that brought them to the place of chemical dependency.
