Roots has a fund to help our residents with rent, medicine, food, transportation, etc. for when life's emergencies happen, they don't have to choose between rent or medicine. This is an extra safety net to help our residents from "Falling through the Cracks". Our Bridging the Gap Fund is also used to help new residents with rent while they are finding their own income stream, because our Vision at Roots is....Every woman healing from Substance Use Disorder should be afforded the opportunity of a supportive, compassionate place to heal and recover, regardless of their socio-economic resources.

Each year our recovery community retreats to the woods in Chickasaw State Park for a weekend of Swimming, Boating, Connection, Workshops, Art, 12 Step Yoga, Healing Circles, Rest, Affirmations, Meditation, Nature Walk Flower Arrangements, Trauma & Inner Child Work & much, much more.
‚ÄčAs women in recovery we have so many responsibilities and daily activities that we sometimes put connecting with ourselves on the back burner. Checking in with ourselves is crucial for the Spiritual Growth and Healing needed for Sustainable Sobriety. Roots Recovery Communities is creating the space to Tune In, Tune Up and Transform.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
