At last!

Construction has started on the new halfway house built on crown land with  money donated by the TCI Government Ministry of Health to the TCI Drug Prevention Foundation and the donations we have raised from individuals and local businesses. We are so very grateful to each and every one who helps support this project in whatever way they can.

The total funds that need to be raised to complete the construction and get the Half Way House operational, is estimated to be $700,000, so we NEED YOUR HELP!

As a joint effort between the Drug Prevention Foundation and the Turks and Caicos Islands Government, a Half-Way House is under construction on the island of Providenciales. This project is designed to assist in the re-integration of drug offenders placed on parole by the courts and to serve as an aftercare program for substance abuse clients who have completed inpatient services but need additional support.

It is also intended that this facility will serve as a custodial program for alternative sentencing of first time non-violent drug offenders. According to the president of the Drug Prevention Foundation, “this program will increase the participant’s ability to function in a socially acceptable manner and reduce their reliance on criminal behaviour as well as drugs/ alcohol and ultimately make the community at large a safer place”.

Other expected benefits of the project include:

• Reduction in recidivism among drug offenders
• Reduction in numbers of drug offenders
• Reduction in drug related crimes
• Reduction in the level of poverty associated with loss of income resources to substance abuse
• Maintenance of treatment gains by patients sent abroad for inpatient rehabilitation

Join in on a great cause!
