Wells Fargo donates $10,000 to Integrity House
Integrity House, a nationally recognized substance-abuse rehabilitation center with locations in Newark and Secaucus, received a donation of $10,000 from Wells Fargo on July 24. The donation will be used to help fund the Women’s Supportive Housing Program, part of Integrity House’s recovery-support program.
“The generosity of Wells Fargo will help us continue our superior service of treatment for women, and help us to raise awareness about the disease of addiction,” said Robert J. Budsock, CEO of Integrity House. “We are truly blessed to have the support of a great company like Wells Fargo as well as several other high-profile businesses. The effect this donation will have on residents in the program and their families will create results and opportunities they need for long-term success with recovery.”
The Women’s Supportive Housing Program provides essential resources that an individual may not have while working to overcome addiction. Hudson County Correctional Facility has a contract with Integrity House to help its women inmates. The program helps provide women with resources to help them learn how to maintain long-term sobriety, how to create financial independence, and how to manage eventual family reunification, all while living in a safe, affordable, and supportive environment. Tenants may remain in the facility for 12-24 months and have access to case-management assistance to help find housing opportunities beyond Integrity House. Wells Fargo’s donation to this facility and program will contribute to the positive progression in residents’ lives.
