Christmas Gifts for Flowering Tree Project Children

Flowering Tree Project is a comprehensive, culturally based
residential treatment program for pregnant women and mothers with
alcohol or drug addictions and their children. Its goal is to
decrease the incidence of prevalence of drug and alcohol use among
substance abusing Native American women and enhance the healthy
development of children.

The residents typically range in age from 17 through 36 and their
children are from newborn up to age 11. The women are allowed to
have up to three children stay with them.

The women stay for a period of one year and during that time receive
extensive therapy on drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence,
grief and loss, and sexual abuse. They are also taught vocational,
educational and parenting skills. Among other things, the women are
taught how to budget, how to deal with personal financial issues,
how to manage a household, and how to cook. The children of these
women also receive therapy during their stay at Flowering Tree.

This Christmas we'd like to provide a gift for each child in
residence at Flowering Tree.  Please let us know if you'd like to
sponsor a child for a gift!

G'day ryan
I seem to have found The Flowering Tree Project while searching for things on asparagus. I can see why, but I'm not sure it's exactly what I'm looking for. Just thought I'd say hello :0)
