Don't Skirt the Issue - Help!

The Zepf Center is repeating its very successful fundraiser “Don’t Skirt the Issue – Help” on Friday, October 20 at the Zepf Community Center, 2272 Collingwood Blvd. All proceeds are directed towards developing housing specifically for mothers, allowing them to continue working on their recovery without being separated from their children, the #1 reason why women leave treatment.   Last year almost  $30,000 was raised for this project.
