Magnolia Women’s Recovery Program Fundraiser

"I believe in Magnolia Women's Recovery Program because it is the only program that engages women around the root causes of their addictions allowing them to break familial cycles so their children can have lives full of security, peace, and comfort. I will never forget one client telling me that upon having her second child she saw him with new eyes. She noticed everything about him. With her first child she could not focus because she was too addicted to being addicted."  -Che Abram, BlackFemaleProject Contributor and daughter of Magnolia’s Founder and Executive Director

Magnolia Women’s Recovery Program is having their largest fundraiser, raffling a 2015 Mercedes CLA. Fore information visit the website, or contact Ms. Abram at
