As Told to Good360 by New Frontier Behavioral Health Clinic
New Frontier, located in Fallon, NV, is dedicated to promoting individual, family, and community wellness through a variety of substance abuse and behavioral health services. We provide quality evidence-based addiction treatment, prevention and behavioral health services to rural Nevadans. We value honest communication, integrity, respect and accountability.
Our services for the homeless population solve some of the needs in our respective communities. Our clients gain more self-esteem, which diminishes thoughts of low self-worth when they receive something new, something not worn by anyone else, something clean. They just shine when they have something that is theirs and they feel empowered to be their best selves. Most of our clients in our detox and residential behavioral health center are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. When they come into our program, most are lacking basic necessities. Anything that we can buy or have donated by way of clothing, shoes, coats, is very much appreciated by these individuals.
Thanks to this donation from Secura, we were able to make meals for homeless individuals in the area. Many of our clients seeking help are living on the street and these cooktops have been used at the local fairgrounds to provide volunteers the ability to cook for these families. It works in the interim while we work to secure them safe and secure housing. We met two women fleeing domestic violence situations, one with a young son and one with two small children. We worked with this family for two weeks and paid for their campground site so that they could get back on their feet and save money. For the families staying on the campground, they are able to utilize the cooktop to make soup and other healthy food choices for their children. Thank you to Secura and Good360 for helping us provide healthy balanced meals to these families in need.
