Throughout this holiday season, Nexus Recovery Center, a Dallas-based nonprofit organization specializing in substance use disorder treatments for adult women (including mothers and women with children), will serve hundreds of women and their accompanying children who are seeking sobriety on the path to recovery. 

Since many of the families who enter the nonprofit are starting from scratch, their mission is to ensure they are supported with the essential items they need, like a warm place to sleep, meals to eat, and clothing to wear as they embark on their recovery journey.  Supporting Nexus’ life-saving services helps the women and children receiving care have a safe and special holiday. Opportunities are now available to sponsor a Nexus family or client today.
