Reconnecting Women and their Children

Gabelcrest is for women who have completed a recovery program for drugs and/or alcohol and wish to reunite with their children

As a non-profit organization, The Salvation Army's Gabelcrest services are provided at a minimal charge to the recipient.

We are able to do so through the generous donations we receive from private individuals.

 

Helping Women Continue the Rebuilding of their Lives after Alcohol and Drugs

Gabelcrest is a one year program, where women are reunited with their children (most of whom have been in the government foster care system). The program emphasizes self-help. New skills are learned, old habits are unlearned. The program is designed to foster independent living skills. After completion of the program, the women are able to function productively and give back to the community from whom they have received help.

Serving the Needs of The Recovering Woman and her Children
