Spectrum Health Systems, Inc.
Spectrum Health Systems is a nonprofit substance abuse and mental health treatment provider caring for over 20,000 individuals annually. Their Women’s and Children’s Center in Westborough is designed to serve pregnant and post-partum women experiencing problems with alcohol and other drugs. Children up to the age of five may live with their mothers at the facility and gives women the opportunity to pursue treatment while maintaining custody of their kids as they attempt to turn their lives around with proper treatment and compassionate care. Donated art will hang in entry, great room, daycare, hallways, lounges, and other community spaces to benefit to the feelings of self worth and self confidence the women need to break their cycle of addiction. With some families living at the program for up to a year, the artwork will create an environment that encourages their full potential.
