Those looking to support Nexus Recovery Center and its mission to help adolescents, women, and children in Dallas, Texas, recover from addiction and chemical dependency can assist the nonprofit in a number of ways. Monetary donations provide valuable support, and people who volunteer their time also have a major impact on the organization.
Financial donations allow Nexus to serve thousands of women and hundreds of children every year. Donors can give monthly or one-time gifts, including gifts in honor or in memory of someone. Nexus also accepts donations of items and stock, and monetary gifts are often matched by foundations to stretch donor dollars.
Volunteers also represent an essential part of Nexus’ operations. There are numerous ways to help out by giving time, but Nexus has a particular need for long-term volunteers. Classroom helpers aid teachers from the Dallas Independent School District as they conduct lessons for Nexus’ adolescent program. Nexus also needs volunteers to provide emotional support and monthly enrichment to teenage girls through a mentoring program. Because of the nature of their work, both classroom helpers and mentors must make a one-year commitment.
Nexus also has opportunities for short-term volunteerism; the organization often needs general office help and volunteers to accompany new clients on trips to Parkland Hospital. Additional information can be found at http://www.nexusrecovery.org.
