Saving Teens in Crisis Needs Your Help To Continue Providing

Woodbury Reports would like to announce on behalf of Saving Teens in Crisis Collaborative, a non-profit organization that assists troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues who don't have the financial resources for quality intervention, the accomplishments of the 2011 year. “The goal is to get all of the scholarships that are available in one place so that people in need will have a single place to go to ascertain whether there is appropriate help available. This could be a family or perhaps an IECA member that is working pro Bono on behalf of a needy family. The key is that there is one reliable source for both for a complete list of options and a procedure for mapping those needs with a solution. Saving Teens will then use their methodology and volunteer consultants to match the families with the scholarships that are available, says John Reuben, Founder of Saving Teens in Crisis Collaborative.”

Organizations offering scholarships are featured on their website as collaborators if the donating programs desire it but the list of scholarships will be only accessible to the educational consultants looking for help for a particular family. That way STICC will insure that they have kids placed in programs based on the "fit" rather than the scholarship. Rueben says, “We hope you will contact us with any scholarship that you are aware of. The larger the pool of alternatives we have the more families we will be able to match with appropriate providers.”

Saving Teens has come a long way since our inception in 2004. Some of our accomplishments in our mission to help families include the following:

• We have fully funded several disadvantaged families through an entire continuum of care spanning over 12-18 months.

• We have fully funded over 60 aftercare scholarships to help needy families adjust after their child comes back from treatment.

• We have helped many other families with partial scholarships along with free or reduced service fees.

• We have received and managed a large grant from the United States Department of Justice.

• We have been selected as the official charity for The National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP).

• We are the recognized resource for families, professionals, and programs attempting to assist teenagers in crisis.

John Reuben says “Saving Teens is where families turn when they have given up all hope for providing their children the help they deserve but cannot afford. Thank you for making this all possible. Much has been accomplished as the result of your support. Will you make a gift today so that much more can be realized?” Please sign on to the STICC website and make a donation at www.savingteens.org.

Saving Teens® In Crisis Collaborative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues who don't have the financial resources for quality intervention. If you have any questions please feel free to contact John D. Reuben, Chairman and Founder at 978-852-2144 or by email at
